My passion from an early age has been anything space/universe-related. From the first time I saw that Imperial Star Destroyer pass overhead at a small cinema in Watford in 1977 with my father and grandfather, I was hooked. Since then I’ve always had my head towards the heavens, always wondering what was there.

I took the name Astro HeartUK in honour of my love for astrophotography and astronomy, and my youngest daughter, Millie (I usually refer to her as “my ikkle Noodle”), who was born with congenital heart disease. She wasn’t expected to make it past a few days old, and yet she’s still here 11 years later, proving that if one determined little girl can kick ass and live the life she believes in, so can we all.

This website represents a combination of some of the important things in my life; my children, my family, and my love for the night sky.
