Here’s some of the stuff I do




I love telling stories

I like to think that making something funny is one of the best ways of making it memorable.

It's because of this that I really love mixing science and comedy.

I've hacked things for BBC Three, talked about data on BBC Tomorrow's World, and given talks at the Royal Institution.

I'm the creator and host of Why Aren't You A Doctor Yet? - a podcast that takes a look at the interesting stories where science, technology and millennial pop-culture overlap. I'm the MC and curator for the Large Stand-Up Collider, a nerdy comedy night held monthly at the Science Museum as part of its 18+ Lates Night.

I've given talks at schools and at conferences, performed at numerous festivals (including Green ManBlue Dot and Cheltenham) and for institutions such as the Wellcome Collection and the Royal Society. And I won FameLab 2017.
