Shane McCracken


Blame Shane. He started it all and as the director he is ultimately responsible. His early career was in advertising and publishing and marketing is not a dirty word.

Hannah Higson

Project Wrangler

Hannah joined the team in January 2022 on the I’m a… projects. Having previously taught in a primary school she has joined the team as a Project Wrangler, working closely with teachers.

Josh Doyle

Data Wrangler

Josh joined us in 2013 after a chemistry degree and a stint as a moderator on the projects. He now works remotely helping us with evaluation, systems, data, but never coffee.

Emily Paget


While Emily has a background in illustration, her main love was computers, technology and accessibility so joined the team to work on the technical side of the site.

Sophie Hötzel

Head moderator

After a Food and Nutrition BSc, Sophie completed an MSc in Science Communication and Public Engagement at the University of Edinburgh.
