Neil is an excellent communicator with an outgoing personality and the ability to relate equally well to industry, media, university, college and student. Neil has the unique ability to make the science, history and archaeology understandable, interesting, and fun.

Deep-water shipwreck investigations attract word-wide media attention and Neil has been the subject of many articles in newspapers, journals and TV shows all over the world. This exposure allows him to spread the message of the significance of deep-water exploration and the importance of marine archaeology in understanding our maritime past. Neil has starred in documentaries for National Geographic, History Channel, PBS, Channel 5, BBC, 12-part Discovery Channel show and recently contributed to an episode of Drain The Oceans. My media and publications CVs are available on request.
