Welcome to XCS Consulting

Welcome to the Philip Spradbery website which covers my professional interests as an entomologist and science communicator and also a variety of extra-curricular activities.

The website provides an entry to the titles of my scientific publications as well as popular science and associated press articles. There are also several stories about sailing and an introduction to the history of boating in Port Moresby. A longstanding interest in motor cars is covered pictorially.

A lifelong passion for painting, printing and sculpture gives me an opportunity to display my wares on the website and also introduce a cousin, Walter E. Spradbery, to those who have not heard of this eminent artist and pacifist.

With tongue firmly in cheek, I can suggest that I am a modest man but I have a lot to be modest about... (modified by Gough Whitlam from an original quote by Winston Churchill)
