I have a long love affair with the English countryside which started when I was a Scout, walking the hills of the Brecon beacons and developed into a love of coastal habitats and marine biology. I have been a marine conservation biologist for 7 years now and have worked in the Caribbean, the Maldives, Vietnam and The Philippines where I have resided for the last 2 years. Throughout this time, I have focused my work on the being at the forefront of tourism interactions with the environment and have published research on how communication of environmental standards can influence attitudes, opinions and beliefs of dive tourists. I firmly believe in creating a sustainable future where people can enjoy their natural surroundings while also being able to mindfully use the provided resources. From the cockle sheds along the Thames Estuary to snorkeling Mearl beds along the south coast.

Our coasts are surrounded by sea life and a rich maritime culture which takes us back to our roots as a sea faring nation. However, the two are often in conflict with one another- leading to the problems of pollution and over-exploitation. On my long-distance walk, I hope to spread the ethos of the Plover Rovers; connecting people with our coastline by exploring our natural heritage and how we can benefit from it non-destructively.

I have a degree and a Masters in Marine Science from Plymouth University and have spent the last

few years researching how environmental change will shape future marine food production. I hope to branch out into public engagement and have a direct effect on the future of our seas!

I believe the three pillars of life are: beer, adventure, science!

I have been lucky enough to have grown up around the North Norfolk coast and would love to communicate and enthuse others about the wonders of the marine environment and what we can do to preserve it. I am passionate about science communication and the positive impact it can have on people’s views of the natural world. During my long-distance walk I hope to help connect people with our country's rich coastline, especially those who may not have easy access to these areas. 
I am currently studying an MSc Biology by Research having gained my undergraduate degree in Zoology. I have also recently been working on a coastal nature reserve and hope to continue working within the conservation sector. 
Outside of this I am happiest when out in nature or drinking a beer in the sun... I’m pretty sure I’m solar powered!


The Plover Rovers are a charity dedicated to enhancing ocean literacy and empowering coastal communities through delivering exciting scientific talks all along the English Coast Path.
