I am a photographer and writer available for commissions based near Farnham, Surrey, in south east England, just 45 minutes from London. I also regularly work in North Wales.

I was born in England to English and Irish parents and grew up in North Wales before moving to New York for 15 years to pursue scientific research. I returned to the UK in 2018. This background informs my work, which is concerned with personal connections to place, the land and natural environment, and how those are changing. 

My ongoing project on people of North Welsh heritage in the northeast US has been exhibited at Northern Eye Festival (2017) and was awarded a commission from the Welsh Parliament in 2019 for exhibition around Wales in 2019-20. 

At a fundamental level I pursue what I am most curious about, and as a former scientist I find that photography and science are both reliant on a curious nature and keen observation of the world around us.
