I am an Edinburgh-based freelance writer and speaker with a focus on history, politics and science.


I have contributed articles to a range of international publications and websites including Free Inquiry, The Humanist, Open Democracy, Nadja, Latterly, Are We Europe and Cafe Babel, among others.


My first book, Past Mistakes: How We Misinterpret History and Why it Matters, was published by Icon Books in November 2020.
