ARTIST & ILLUSTRATOR
I have a knack for colour, humour and making visually bold pieces - from funny characters to striking pieces of contemporary art.
My first collection Not So Fanastic, focusses on the impact of plastic on the human body and the tireless wait to reduce our plastic consumption. The aim of the work is to reduce the imagined distance between ourselves and the consequences of our way of living.
I am currently open for commissions - for illustration in digital, ink, watercolour and gouache.
COMEDIAN & ACTOR
I am an improvised comedian, singer (soprano) and actor. I create expressive and truthful characters.
I joined the Oxford Imps in 2015, since performing in hundreds of shows in and around Oxford, as well as at the Edinburgh Fringe. I now perform with Jericho Comedy in Harry Potter parody : 'The Show That Must Not Be Named' and across the UK in 'An Improvised Funeral'. I guest spotted in Criminal, a murder mystery improv show featuring
comedians such as Josie Lawrence, Miles Jupp and Rachel Parris.
I have done voice overs for Jack FM and voice acting/over for Josh Berry's 2018 Edinburgh Fringe Show: `Voice Thief'.
Any subject can be made accessible and exciting with the right explainer. In 2014 I began communicating science by co-presenting on The Jodcast. Since then, I have co-hosted on Recycled Electrons (with Sky at Night presenter Prof. Chris Lintott) and A Piece of String. I have also given numerous public talks and produced and presented videos on Astrophysics. I was a panellist at the Royal Lyceum Edinburgh's talk show.
I contributed to The Edge of Science, a BBC Studios and YouTube Originals programme with 2.1M+ views on the science of levitation. I got to ride a hoverboard!
Most recently, I presented the BBC Earth Weird Science short web series on big questions in science, and the people trying to answer them.
