Hi. Welcome to my blog.

I know what you're thinking. Why is Donald Trump still president? When will a safe COVID vaccine be released? Is reading this the best use of my time? Where are my pants?

I'm largely unqualified to answer your very important questions. But I can offer you science musings such as: Will Teleporters Destroy Your Soul? and No Because We Have No Souls and Are Simply Biological Machines and How Do Jellyfish Have Sex? (An inexplicably popular article, you pervs.)

But first, how did we get here today? Well, here's my story.

After leaving school I fell into stock market admin and later trained on the job as a financial journalist in London. It was kind of interesting but also deathly stressful and money-oriented. Who knew?

So I moved to New Zealand and became a freelance writer. I did my time writing micro-copy, sales letters, technical reports, medical brochures, and so on. Then I had a much better idea.

I started blogging. I built five blogs in five years and this happy turn of events exposed my work to millions of website visitors while helping me refine my writing.

Naturally, time passed. I decided to sell my blogs and turn all my attention to my favourite topic of all: science. In the footsteps of the great Isaac Asimov, I'm writing a science fiction novel too. I'm also working towards a Bachelor of Science (Zoology) with a minor in Creative Writing.

So, Science Me is kind of a sandbox to refine my science writing and build a fanbase for my Kindle book due in 2021. If you enjoy what you read here, then I'm stoked, and you should definitely subscribe to my email list (see the robot fellow below) to be notified when my kickass sci-fi novel comes out. It's a win-win-win-win-win. Win.

Outside of work, I have two hilarious goofball children, Fox and Kea. I live in the burbs in north Auckland. From my bedroom window where I write, I can see three beaches and a volcano. I am very lucky to live such a majestic Hobbit-esque lifestyle.

I hope you stick around for the ride. Follow me on Facebook and Instagram and email me if you'd like to talk science.

Lastly, since my cartoons suck, here's an actual picture of me and Fox on Red Beach last winter.
