Steve will be working mainly on the yearlong FutureFest programme, bringing Nesta’s work and ideas to new audiences through innovative events.
Steve is a public engagement and research communication specialist, having been Head of Public Engagement at UCL and a Wellcome Engagement Fellow in the past few years. He’s also been a museum curator (for Wellcome Collection), exhibition developer (for the Science Museum) and event organiser in previous posts.
When he’s not working on FutureFest Steve can be found running clever comedy gigs at venues and festivals across the UK in his guise as a comedian and the founder of Science Showoff and Bright Club, and taking photographs of interesting people.
Steve has twins and won’t shut up about it.
