Currently on a mission to increase participation and develop skills in digital making, for everyone in society, and inspire future generations to create, invent and learn.

I have over 20 years of extensive experience as a senior teacher and creative technologist and am a strong advocate of improving girls’ and women’s opportunities in STEM.

Published a research paper with Leeds University, where we explored the impact of maker education on the formal curriculum in secondary schools, and leading on digital community projects including Leeds Raspberry Jam.

Forever finding my dance feet through tech 💃
