As a wildlife writer, I love encouraging people to connect with nature through immersive storytelling. I created my blog in 2015 to document my travels, using photography and art as visual accompaniments to my work. I write to inspire others to discover wildlife for themselves. Since moving to Scotland I have been particularly enjoying writing about coastal and marine species.
I spent a year documenting wildlife expeditions across the UK as the Creative Content Developer for Wild Intrigue and have recently been invited back to the company as Writer in Residence. While working for BBC Wildlife magazine and Student and Graduate Publishing I created engaging digital content for a range of audiences. I have also written for Hertfordshire Life, the Cumberland News and youth nature network A Focus on Nature. During my time with non-profit group SEZARC in Florida I discovered a love of translating hard science into accessible material for the general public. After returning to the UK I wrote and designed SEZARC’s annual report for 2018.
I am a regular contributor to Blue Sky Wildlife and I recently became a Nature Editor for Bloom in Doom magazine. I am also studying for an MA in Travel and Nature Writing. When I’m not writing or walking along the Moray coast, I enjoy watercolour painting.

“Rebecca is the perfect person to translate hard science into an interesting and understandable story for everyone. She prepared our annual report and incorporated lots of design ideas to make it visual and dynamic. Her phrasing of our science allowed us to reach a wide audience with our findings and the finished product was professional and impressive. Rebecca has an innate understanding of nature and a passion for communicating that to people. Her work bridges science with the art of storytelling; a rare talent, indeed.
