About

Officially, I am a researcher. Research without communication is not very useful, which means I write and draw and make films and music. All of this is to say, I tell stories for a living.

You can see the TedX talk I did in November 2020 for an example of this story telling in action.

I freelance as a journalist, I offer copy writing services to corporate clients, I publish short stories with literary magazines, and I illustrate.

I am a founder-director of social enterprise OpHouse. We are bringing radically affordable housing to the city of York.

My sister (who has an exceptional blog of her own) and I run a podcast called Treesin Review, where we journey through history and botany to compare one famous tree and one famous treason on a five stalk scale. It’s really good. We do our own theme music.
