Short biography
I am an environmental writer and historian, with a particular interest in the cultural cross-currents that flow between the sciences and the humanities. I was born in 1965 and grew up in Truro, Cornwall; Kingston, Jamaica; and Hastings, East Sussex (my adopted father was a fisheries biologist – hence the maritime locations).
