I’m a web and graphic designer, currently running my own business, Tall Lime, and studying for my MA in Digital Media at the University of Lincoln.

I am mainly interested in history and American studies, and my MA dissertation will focus on the journey taken by King John and the Barons both before and after the sealing of Magna Carta in 1215. The result will be an interactive digital game available online.

I’m also a radio presenter and have produced and presented my own country music radio show for six years. In summer 2015 I am co-presenting a new documentary series for radio titled Royal Progress, which re-traces a prominent royal journey from across history every week. The pilot will focus on the journey to Magna Carta.
