Science writing

Articles, features, press releases

Did you just publish an awesome paper and want to tell the world about it? That's great, let's have a chat. I can transform formulae and equations into a beautiful story.

Social media

Maximise your research's impact

Advertising your work on social media leads to a higher impact. Get in touch if you want to craft a personalised social media campaign to promote your results.

Art & design

Bring your ideas to life

Art transforms how we perceive ideas. If you want to revamp your presentations, design a cool cover, build a website or create an animation, let me know.

Not sure what you want? That’s fine! ?
Just drop me an email and we can book a free 30-minute consultation session on Skype.
