Current Activities

I am a full-time technical writer working for a cloud services IT company in London.

In spare time I am a partner with brief for education in the DesignScience agency. DS is an editorial design and education agency aimed at bringing science and design closer together. Among other projects, I was co-editor, author and programmer/designer for the Litmus Paper newspaper published at the Cheltenham Science and Literature Festivals in 2012. Code developed in Processing for Litmus Paper can be accessed via an OpenProcessing collection. We are currently working on new Processing programs and a set of web essays on design, science, communication, and learning. Also we have been funded by the Wellcome Trust to develop a series of communications workshops for scientists.

Art of Anamorphosis, an ongoing maths-art education project.

Samples of my programming activities are at Github (and Gist) and OpenProcessing.

I do private mathematics tuition. I specialise in secondary maths (KS3 and GCSE) and helping teachers and trainees to prepare for the QTS Numeracy Test.  I am also available for proof reading and editing of academic writing (theses, dissertations, papers)  or technical writing.
