I work in Scotland as a freelancer in science engagement, with over six years experience science festivals, including researching, writing and presenting content often focused on the natural world. With a background in biology and performance I  create and deliver workshops, podcasts, educational resources and online content, as well as experimenting with telling science stories through theatre, film, photography and social media. This is a space to find out about my current work, to look at some previous content creation and to find out if you want to work together. Collaboration is my bag, so please get in touch if you are interested in working together!

In a paragraph

I am currently working on the musical, The Mould that Changed the Worldas a science engagement manager, creating legacy projects for the show that tell the story of antimicrobial resistance. This includes a new podcast and teaching resources. I also just finished writing a new show for Generation Scienceto go on tour in 2024 and have developed videos and workshops for the Coastal Communities Network and Scottish International Storytelling Festival in the past year.

A musical about what?

The Mould that Changed the World is a musical about antibiotics, Alexander Fleming and the very real crisis of antimicrobial resistance. We went on tour at the end of 2022 and am I preparing a new podcast and set of learning resources for our next trip to America in autumn (/fall) 2024. You can read our New York Times article here.

Family friendly resources

I am working on a new set of self-led, family-friendly resources for the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, which will be complete and ready for your attention in spring/summer 2024!


The Coastal Communities Network is an amazing set of groups that do bottom up marine conservation all around Scotland. I was invited to their biannual meeting to take help celebrate their first ten years by creating a video of their work.

COMMUnity engagement

I recently worked with the Scottish Wildlife Trust to engage with various community groups in Edinburgh and explore our connection to urban green spaces. The project culminated in a short film where participants over sixty talked about what had changed in their lifetime and the importance of intergenerational communication.
