This is me in a boat off the Isle of Skye, but normally I’m at home a lot further south working as a freelance journalist. I specialise in religion and social affairs stories.
My news reports, analysis and features have been published by The Guardian, The Times, The Economist, The Sunday Telegraph, The Independent and the BBC, among others. I previously worked for four years as a news reporter and digital editor of the Church Times, the UK’s leading newspaper covering religion. You can find some of my work here.
I also co-host a podcast called Matters of Life and Death which discusses the ethics of issues in healthcare, technology and science. You can listen to the most recent episodes below, or click here to subscribe.
