About me and the things that I do

Here’s me, hiding my “Face for Radio” at the Secret Cinema: The Empire Strikes Back.

Hello. I’m Andrew and I’m a science communicator dedicated to bringing the beauty of reality to life.

I work on and produce a huge variety of projects and was really very fortunate to have been part of the team who toured the BBC Blue Planet Live! in 2006 and 2008 with BBC Worldwide. I learned an awful lot on those tours, not least that combining science and the arts is a hugely rewarding and effective way of communicating both.

Science and Art are just two ways humans have discovered of exploring and expressing our place in the Cosmos and I love to find new ways of combining them both to share my love of the universe in which we find ourselves.

Here’s a picture of me, taken after I interviewed Fred Haise. In other words, here’s a picture of the Apollo 13 astronaut Fred Haise.

One of these people is Fred Haise, the Apollo 13 astronaut.

Aside from the live events, I also host and present radio shows and podcasts and work as a facilitator, producer, director and love nothing more than engaging directly with people face to face.

You can find out more about the live events and podcasts by following the links.

I’m delighted to work with The Natural History Museum, Manchester Science Festival, Cheltenham Science Festival, The Barbican, Danny Boyle, Benedict Cumberbatch, Diamond Light Source, The Institute of Physics and the BBC, to name but a few.

Obviously, the vast majority of my work finds me part of a team or people creating these events, shows and programmes and if you’d like to work with me or to book me to work with you or your organisation, I’d love to hear from you.

Here’s a film I made with Ben Cowburn about Diamond Light Source called, “Science in its Purest Form”.
