I'm a heritage interpretation consultant and trainer, based in Edinburgh, Scotland. My work helps people to find meaning in places like nature reserves, museums, castles and forests.

I like to find inspiring, unusual ways to conjure the spirit of a place, to tell interesting tales in a few words, and give visitors space to make their own experiences. I hope that sometimes my work helps people fall in love with the places they visit.

 

Interpretation and visitor experience

Heritage interpretation – the art of encouraging people to connect with and learn about heritage sites – is central to my work. I believe that the best interpretation comes from thinking about the whole experience that visitors have. That means I often work with designers, landscape architects, artists, and architects to deliver memorable and effective projects.

I have over thirty years’ experience in this field and have helped to shape many aspects of good practice. Get in touch if you’d like to know more.
