About

Author sitting reading in old building.

Welcome to my strange and shadowy corner of the internet. Don’t mind the cobwebs.

If you’re fascinated by the mysteries of the human body as well as the darker side of life – you’ve come to the right place! This blog explores the worlds of anatomy, death as well as other elements of “the gothic”.

As a repository for the ideas, questions and random ponderings jostling around the squishy bit inside my skull, I have no doubt there will also be a few random elements sprinkled throughout. Thereby preserving precious space for anatomical terminology, song lyrics and pin numbers.

Since you’ve come to this page, I’d hazard a guess that you’d like to know a bit more about me. Well, as you will have gathered from the name by now, I’m an anatomist. Or more accurately, I’m pathologically obsessed with all things anatomical and I have a penchant for the dark and macabre.

I recently graduated with an MSc in Medical Visualisation and Human Anatomy from the awesome Glasgow School of Art and University of Glasgow, as well as holding a BSc(Hons) in Anatomy from the University of Glasgow. However, before returning to university to begin my long overdue anatomy adventure, I had a background working within the funeral profession as an undertaker/embalmer.

When I’m not writing, researching or otherwise sitting in front of a computer, I can be found wandering museums and graveyards. I also love pickles and haggis!

Please feel free to take a look around the dark recesses of my website and make yourself feel at home. I’d love to hear from you so please comment on my posts and/or contact me if you fancy a chat.
