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'.

SCIENCE PRESENTER

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 2M+ views on the science of levitation. I got to ride a hoverboard!
