Me

I am a Green Badge Belfast tour guide, public historian, local resident and podcaster. I am obsessed with the history of Belfast, my adopted home and want to share my fascination for the subject and love of the city with others!

Originally from London, I’ve lived in Belfast since 2014.

I completed my Belfast Green Badge  in November 2021. Since then, I have been leading tours and am a member of the Northern Ireland Tourist Guide Association.

I also have a PhD from King’s College London that explored the history of the morale, cohesion and motivation of British soldiers during the First World War.

Since being in Northern Ireland, I have also been involved in a range of local social and medical history projects such as the Ulster University’s Belfast Epidemic medical history learning resource, the Queen’s University Belfast Living Legacies programme and the Men Behind the Glass Project at Campbell College Belfast. I am also an Honorary Research Associate at Ulster University and a Tutor on the QUB Open Learning programme.

I am also a member of the Belfast Titanic Society and a Trustee of the First World War history society The Western Front Association and am Secretary its Antrim and Down branch. The WFA runs regular free conferences and online lectures on all aspects relating to the social, military, political, and economic history of the First World War.

Added to this, I’m also an avid podcaster, hosting and producing three history podcasts. These are the Western Front Association’s weekly Mentioned in Dispatches Podcast, the Epidemic Belfast podcast, and Combat Morale podcast.

If you fancy coming on one of my Belfast history tours, the details are here.
