Originally from Aberdeen, I moved to Edinburgh to study Chemical Physics 14 years ago, fell in love with the city and never left. During my degree I was involved in founding the city’s first Harry Potter walking tours which I ran for 10 years. I have since expanded my knowledge as a guide somewhat and now lead groups all over Scotland but Edinburgh, with its incredible history, culture, food, architecture and people, is still my original passion. Alongside tour guiding I also work for the Edinburgh Science Festival, leading science workshops for children and training others to communicate science effectively. I also have a real passion for writing and performing comedy and have produced over 20 shows for the Edinburgh Festival Fringe since 2011. I get great pleasure from communicating ideas in clear and entertaining ways and love meeting new people. My enthusiasm for Edinburgh is boundless and I hope to make you love this city as much as I do!
