About me

D83A5298-2completeI am a writer, researcher and activist who facilitates rural community wellbeing. My background is diverse as a scientist, analyst, outdoor educator, trainer, project and change manager and facilitator. I’ve worked in life sciences, the oil industry, financial services, and the third and public sectors.

Since June 2014, I have been working independently on a variety of projects – in my own community, and with Lateral North for Fintry and the Bioregion study of Argyll and Bute. In 2015 I completed MIT’s ULab course Transforming Business, Society and Self.



  • BA Biochemistry (University of Oxford)
  • MSc Environmental Management (University of Stirling)
  • An interdisciplinary PhD (University of Stirling): Survive or thrive: creating options for sustainable communities in rural Scotland.
