Shaun has a bachelor’s degree in Environmental Science with first class honours, specializing in Soil Science, and a Graduate Diploma in Natural Resource Studies—both from the University of Queensland, Brisbane.
He became a creationist before he became a Christian, in his first university year. This helped him form a solid foundation on the Word of God that was able to withstand the evolutionary attacks levelled at his ‘young’ faith at university.
From 2005 to 2008, and again from 2010 until the present Shaun has worked for CMI as an editor and reviewer for the
Journal of Creation, and has written numerous articles for Creation magazine, Journal of Creation, and CMI’s website creation.com.
