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

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

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 & space, 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 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.

If you’d like to find out more about me, there’s a more detailed summary of my work to date here.
