Dr. Mariann Hardey
Dr Mariann “Maz” Hardey, is the woman behind this website. She grew up in the wild (or, rather the varied spaces) of the south of England, before moving oooop noooorth to York, where she learned to ride horses, while developing a penchant for Betty’s Fat Rascals, and discovering that gracious living can bring you closer to the lives of others. Or provide a good afternoon’s divergence.
Mariann is a professional academic also working as a freelance social media commentator, and happily resides near to the dales and vales where she tackles everyday dilemmas with intrigue, daydreams about fine wine, and (when in doubt) gives her library card a jolly good workout.
She has a doctorate – ya know – in social technologies and media+ stuff. In her free time, she seeks inspiration drinking Japanese tea, scribbling down ideas on numerous pads and feeling genuinely reassured that others can fall into so many of the same pitfalls when getting up close and personal. Especially on Facebook.
