Hi!

Welcome to my site! I’m an astronomy journalist, author and presenter based in the UK.

For more than twenty years I’ve been fascinated by the night sky and the extraordinary places & processes found across the Cosmos. Today I try to channel that passion into all my work, which – in varied ways – explores the magic of stargazing and the myriad wonders of the Universe.

My writing has appeared in New ScientistBBC Sky at Night MagazinePhysics WorldFocus and Astronomy Now, among others. I’ve also written a handful of books on astronomy and I’m an experienced observational astronomer and astrophotographer.

Over the years I’ve worked in several areas to popularise science & astronomy, including with appearances on television and radio. I’ve also recently toured with my first live theatre show – The Story of the Solar System – and my first children’s book, The Mysteries of the Universe, was published in 2020.
