ABOUT ME

I always dreamed of being a journalist and a writer and at the age of five made my 'media debut' as Editor In Chief of my very own Care Bear magazine.

Back then,  I had no idea that I'd end up editing some of the most high profile and most watched TV programmes, witnessing first hand historic moments such as the inauguration of President Obama and reporting on some of the biggest news stories of the 21st century.  

 

I spent over 15 years working at the BBC as a programme editor on Breakfast, Newsround and Match of the Day Kickabout.  During this time I learned from some of the world's most respected journalists and talented production staff and editors.  It was through them I began to understand audiences.  How to write for them, how to keep them enthralled and entertained and how, in some cases, to educate them.  

 

The BBC taught me how to film, edit, direct programmes, work in hostile environments, broadcast live radio, produce online content and create a brand new programme from scratch... and how to have fun doing it! 

In my consultancy work I put all these skills to good use to help businesses tell their stories and reach out to new audiences.  I devise media strategies, produce websites, blogs and marketing material and help with promotion.  I also lecture university students and write for some of the country's most high profile publications.
