Who is Sam?


I’ve done many jobs, including a barmaid, call centre worker, forensic scientist and a civil servant. These days I’m a freelance writer and the science editor for Jump! magazine, an online publication that aims to inspire, educate and entertain kids. I have two children and I’m passionate about science, reading, gardening and music. I also love dyeing my hair bright colours!

My articles for Jump! proved so popular with adults as well as children and teens that I started this site to share all the interesting and exciting science that I can find. Please feel free to comment and ask questions as much as you like, I want this site to reflect your scientific interests as well as mine.


  1. I love your science website!! Also your sister is my teacher!? Whenever I’m bored o always love to look at your website and jump mag articles too!

    1. Thank you Esther, it’s good to hear that you enjoy my work so much! 🙂 Science is fascinating and I’m glad you like it too.

  2. We have just read your answer to the question about space ending and watched the video. It was incredible and made my brain hurt!
