Here's some stuff i do




I love telling stories and 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 (and sometimes hip-hop too).

Generally, what I do falls into one of the above three categories (but there's sometimes overlap!) 

I won FameLab 2017 (so I guess I'm the UK's best science communicator until next year), have been featured on BBC Radio 4 (and World Service) and am also one of the few people to have ever rapped while encased in a MRI scanner.

I'm the MC and curator for the Large Stand-Up Collider, a new 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.

I've been fortunate to have received mentoring through the Science Showoff Talent Factory scheme and can often be found at a Science Showoff night somewhere in the country. I now mentor future science communicators through the Talent Factory scheme, as well as developing my own performance.
