Biography:

I am a freelance astronomer working as a consultant with Educational Telescope Project ( Faulkes & NSO) an educational access telescope system with 2 metre, 1 metre and 0.4m metre telescopes across the globe. These telescopes are FREE access to educational establishment and accessible from the classroom / lecture room.

I am a Space ambassador with Slooh Telescopes again offering guidance to usage and education

I also work with the BBC as an astronomical correspondent and presenter of Eye on The Sky on BBC Radio Shropshire.

I undertake many astronomical talks across the UK and into Ireland throughout the year in schools, Colleges, Astronomical Societies and other organisations on many topics listed on my website (www.outreachastronomer.co.uk). It is my pleasure to deliver astronomical talks for Shropshire County Council and The National Trust in Shropshire on a regular basis ( 4 times a year for each organisation ).

Along with my family we run Astro Radio & Solarsphere Astronomical & Music Festival dedicated to bringing astronomy and the sciences to newcomers of all ages.

Recently I have been asked to work closely with AstroCymru in Wales on outreach events for youngsters.

I have undertaken many talks across the UK and Ireland including The Mansion House London Livery Banquet accompanied by The Lord Mayor of London

I am DBS registered.

My Websites are as follows where you will find a list of my bookings and talks / workshops I can undertake plus a full biography.

I will undertake talks remotely via Zoom etc or in person anywhere in the UK and Ireland.
