My Mission

Do you find yourself looking up at the stars at night and wondering what is hiding out there in the Universe? Do you want to know more about our weird and wonderful cosmos?


I am an Astrophysicist and Science Communicator. I love to share my passion for space and astronomy as far and wide as I possibly can. I have presented on various radio shows and TV shows, but nothing beats a face-to-face public presentation, whether it'd be at a school or open to the public.


My favourite part about what I do is seeing someone's face light up when the lightbulb flicks on, their eyes widen, and they have that "ah-ha" moment. I want to help people appreciate and understand space and astronomy so that we can all enjoy the night sky that we share, together.


If you want to know more about our wonderful Universe, let me share my passion with you and your audience. Click the button below, drop me a line and let's talk space!
