About me

There is no life I know to compare with pure imagination.

Who am I?

I am a writer who has produced audio dramas, short stories, screen and theatre plays, and one or two love letters. I developed a devastating addiction to theatre at a young age, years before they would even let me in. Eventually, the National Youth Music Theatre took pity on me.

I've lived in England, Spain, the US, and Scotland. Specifically, Reading, London, Barcelona, Madrid, Los Angeles (various bits), Oban, Edinburgh, and Bristol. My accent can be weird.

I've taught English as a Foreign Language to people of many different nationalities and professions, walked El Camino de Santiago in Spain, driven across America to witness Obama's inauguration, and swum with piggies in the Bahamas. I became a science writer by accident, and I've now worked in science communication with a variety of companies, including the Royal Astronomical Society, The Alan Turing Institute, and the Smithsonian Channel.

I have acted in audio dramas, plays, musicals, webseries, and various emo short films. I'm kept alive by the vivacity of Bristol, regular improv, the kindness of strangers, and the dripping sarcasm of intimates.

Things I love include stories, cosmology, nieces, cheese, penguins, trusting something you can't see, and defeating haters. We are all ugly bags of mostly water, and I think that's beautiful.

Ali :-)
