I am currently training to be a priest in the Church of England and writing a PhD on Theology and climate/ecological grief. I am the editor of Words for a Dying World: Stories of Grief and Courage from the Global Church (SCM Press, 2020).
I previously worked for the diocese of Manchester, coordinating their national education project on science and faith. A lot of what I do involves convincing young people that we do with our scientific innovations matters, and reflects who – or what – we value. While I lived in Manchester I set up a regional group for Christian Climate Action. Before moving to Manchester I lived at Hilfield Friary in Dorset and spent the best part of a year doing Anglican-Franciscan stuff, running an eco-friendly kitchen feeding 50 people a day, and helping to coordinate environmental education work with young people visiting the friary. Before that I spent the best part of 6 years studying Theology on three different continents (the UK, the U.S., and Singapore, to be more precise).
I am married to a heavily bearded philosophy PhD student from Alaska and we have a fairly stupid dog called Apple Juice.
This site largely functions as gathering space for things I write elsewhere, though I do also publish original writing on it from time to time. If you want to ask me about speaking at an event or writing for you, please contact me via this site rather than sending me a DM on Twitter. Thank you!
