I'm an award winning science communicator and public engagement professional.
I'm an accidental quiz host, the founder of a science festival and a keen advocate for nurturing new and diverse faces in science communication!

I am keen to bring new voices into science engagement, and include this in everything I do

Online Engagement

I am the founder of the Global Science Show, a monthly virtual science festival. 

Operating out of Twitter, this platform provides the opportunity for science communicators of all ages, backgrounds and experiences to become the presenters. 

As a non-judgemental experimental space, it has provided networking opportunities and some of our presenters have gone on to become award winning video producers. 

You can find out about upcoming shows here

We also run partnership shows, including an upcoming collaboration with Explorathon and European Researchers Night. 

Hire me to manage your online engagement project and share your research on a global scale. 

Live Events

I co-produce multiple live events which attract diverse audiences and provide a platform to a broad range of scientists and science communicators. 

I am the co-producer and host of Science is a Drag! an online drag and cabaret show which celebrates the queer side of STEM. This event recently sold over 170 tickets and split income between all of the performers.

I also co-produce and host Zoo-Lol-Ogy! the pun-derful dive into the Animal Kingdom alongside Hana Ayoob. This stand up comedy show platforms science communicators from across the country to share their humourous thoughts on the natural world.

Corporate Entertainment

I am an accidental quiz host, having started Sam's Socially Distant Science Quiz in March 2020. Running for 16 weeks and raising £3000 for various charities, this high quality quiz experience (hosted from my spare room) is available for hire. 

I have hosted light entertainment and networking events for academic conferences, networking meetings and as part of science festivals. 

Get in touch for an extremely daft experience that you'll always remember. 


I am available for hosting duties and can run your event for you! From hosting interviews with high profile authors to being master of ceremonies for Education Scotland's Community Learning conference, I am an organised, versatile and charming host. 

Book me for your next event and I promise your event will stand out!
