Hello, I’m Mary


A little about me…

It’s sometimes said that if you can’t explain a concept simply then you don’t understand it well enough. My work is all about taking complex concepts and making them lucid and engaging, so that anyone can access and appreciate even the trickiest ideas.

I trained as a journalist and started my career as a copywriter for a tech start-up. I then went on to work as a communicator for a particle accelerator, writing about some of the most challenging topics out there, from quantum technology to nanomedicine. I’ve since worked as a senior science writer for the UK government, as a newspaper columnist, and as a content creator for one of the world’s largest health foundations.

In November 2019, my first book - An Illustrated History of Science - was published, and I am currently working as a content producer in the international development sector, covering stories about humanitarian and human rights issues.

I have experience across the public, private, and third sectors, and I’m as comfortable generating communications copy as I am producing straight journalism.

Whether you’re looking for a communicator, a copywriter, an editor, or a reporter, I can provide the skills you need to capture your audience’s attention and drive action.
