Most of my work is in below-the-line comms, thanks to a background in journalism, PR and digital marketing.
I spent 15 years as a journalist (including more than a decade in national newspapers). Along the way there were stints in a busy press office, as a comms manager working extensively with the sales team of a leading digital marketing agency, and with an independent picture agency.
I've written, edited, sub-edited and proofread everything from books and speeches through to brochures, direct mail, and case studies. And, despite being a hopeless lightweight, a beer menu for a national pub chain.
Nowadays I work with anyone from tech start-ups to international sporting bodies. Give me a call or get in touch through LinkedIn or Twitter.
