I'm someone who loves nature and the environment, so I joined the Darwin Tree of Life team to try and help scientists protect it!
What did you want to be after you left school?
Loads of things! Highlights include a marine biologist, a doctor, a teacher and a barrister!
Were you ever in trouble at school?
I got detention for talking to my friend during physics class...
What's your favourite food?
If you had 3 wishes for yourself what would they be? - be honest!
1) A carbon-neutral teleport device (so I can quickly visit friends in Canada), 2) an extra 3 hours a day dedicated to reading books and 3) the ability to win GBBO!
