When I was on holiday visiting my grandparents who lived on the Jurassic rocks of the North Somerset coast, I discovered the fascination of fossils. This sparked a fascination with geology which took me to many amazing places including to the Isle of Mull where I researched an extinct volcano. After escaping from a career in the Telecommunications industry in 2006 and moving to Northumberland I started up Northumbrian Earth to share my enthusiasm for rocks, fossils and the landscape with visitors and the local community.
Since then I have been working with the Northumberland Coast AONB amongst many other partners to tell the fascinating stories about the rocks and landscape of the area and have become more and more interested in the way that geology connects to so many different subjects. From volcanoes to the first amphibians, mining and industrial archaeology to little terns, and poetry to continental drift there is so much to explore within this beautiful landscape.
