About Me

In a varied career spanning three decades I’ve worked as a journalist, news editor, magazine editor, copywriter and public relations and media consultant.

I’ve worked for the Express & Star, Shropshire Star, Nottingham Post, South Wales Evening Post and Archant lifestyle magazines, while also doing freelance work for a range of publications.

I’ve also enjoyed five years as a freelance public relations specialist, focussing on NHS and education clients; and worked as a content creator for Worcestershire County Council, creating online and digital stories and managing social media channels.

I’ve just completed a Master’s degree in multiplatform and mobile journalism at Birmingham City University, under the tutelage of renowned data and mobile journalism specialist Prof Paul Bradshaw.

I’m now keen to put these varied experiences into practice. I look forward to working with publishers, organisations and companies to tell stories using words, images, mobile video and other tools, across traditional and digital channels.
