Based in Plymouth, UK
I am an independent scientist, film maker and expedition guide. A former Royal Society university research fellow, my interests lie in how we influence the plankton food web from climate change to plastic pollution and communicating this to the public. I have created plankton exhibitions around the world, worked with international fashion designers, and I founded the global, citizen science Secchi Disk study. Buy my Ocean Drifters book for you or your child, watch the Ocean Drifters film to hear David Attenborough describe my secret world, or join the Secchi Disk study if you go to sea.

Invite me to tell your audience about a secret world
My talks, images and films on plankton are new and engaging. Invite me to speak at your event, appear on your show, create an exhibition or act as an expedition guide.
