About me

I have over 20 years experience in museums and galleries, interpreting science, nature, art, history and human cultures for a wide range of audiences through programmes, outreach, exhibition making and gallery development. I’ve worked in museums, art galleries and historic houses, with collections as varied as stingrays and steam engines.   

My work has covered most areas of museum practice and has always had access and engagement with collections as its aim. I’ve been an educator outside formal education for many years now, studying the wide range of ways in which different people learn. 

I am fascinated by the potential of museums as ‘free choice’ learning environments, where people are free to follow their tastes and enthusiasms. After many years in the business I finally got around to studying for a Masters and graduated in Interpretive Studies from the University of Leicester in 2009.

I am a member of consultancy group: Creative Heritage.
