Bringing the latest brain science to the people since 2008
For over twelve years now I’ve been writing a monthly Brain Blog so there are plenty of articles bundled into various categories (in the panel on the right if you’re on a computer, or if you’re reading this on a phone just scroll to the bottom of the page).
My full biog can be found via the menu at the top, but in a nutshell my mission over the past 14 years has been to help people understand the many things they can do to get their brains functioning at full potential.
As a motivational speaker I’ve given my brain talks on decision making, innovation, building resilience and improving cognitive function at annual general meetings / conferences for dozens of businesses across every industry sector.
I’ve also written several books including a best-selling business book (Sort Your Brain Out) and a couple of pop science books (The Science of Sin and the Mice Who Sing For Sex).

I’ve also appeared as a brain expert in a few documentaries (like the multi-award winning caution against screen overuse I Am Gen Z) and prime-time TV shows like Duck Quacks Don’t Echo, Ranganation and Big Brother.

This next one was a fantastic project to be a part of, as it merged my two major passions in life: brain science and virtual reality. We used virtual reality to take a volunteer on a voyage inside their own brain in a short film for the gambling charity GamCare to help people understand some of the process that lead to addictive behaviour…
