Museum Interpretation

With twenty years’ experience in museums, I now work with teams around the world on interpretation projects and text-writing. I began my career with ten years at the Science Museum, and in a review of a gallery in which I led the interpretation, Museums Journal wrote:

“The exhibition succeeds brilliantly in its use of text, pitched beautifully in terms of quantity and content.”

As well as contributing to the museums press, my recent freelance projects include

“This is a sublime scientific and imaginative journey to the bottom of the sea…  Colossal bones, recorded whale sounds and a lucid account of their evolution, make for a haunting and informative encounter with some of the most astonishing animals on earth.” – The Guardian’s review by Jonathan Jones

“Somehow, the exhibition’s clever curation and simple-enough labels manage to make the evolution clear to understand for all ages– amazingly, their ancestors used to even walk on land” – Kids in Museums review by Chloe Turner

I am a member of the Museums Association and the Group for Education in Museums.
