I am a freelance science writer with over 10 years of experience, based
in York, UK. I generally cover
the physical and environmental sciences, but have been known to stray
into other areas of science too.
By training I am a geologist but my science
interests are diverse and I have written about topics ranging from
beetles that collect raindrops to aggresive drivers that cause traffic
jams. Past and present science writing clients have included New Scientist, The Economist, The Daily Telegraph, The Guardian, The Independent, Focus Magazine, Archaeology Magazine,
National Geographic Daily
Science News,and Environmental
of many of my articles is also
on this website.
I was winner of The Daily
Telegraph/BASF Young Science Writer of
the Year award in 2000. In addition I was a runner up in the New
Scientist/Wellcome Trust Millennial Science Essay Competition 2000.

Much of my spare time is taken in entertaining my two year old
but when I do have a moment I enjoy mountaineering, particularly in
Scotland. At home I like to grow my own fruit and vegetables and also
help out at a local nature reserve, learning practical skills such as
dry stone walling and hedge-laying. When indoors I relax by doing
various craft activities, reading good books, and going to the theatre
