I am a London-based media professional whose current career guise is as communications manager at Inspired Villages, the UK’s leading retirement community operator and developer. Prior to that I worked in journalism full-time for over six years, moving up the ranks to editor of specialist trade title HealthInvestor UK at the grand old age of 25. I was then a consultant at political lobbying and media relations agency PLMR for a year and a half before going in-house at Inspired.

I still work as a journalist on a freelance basis, and have been published by The Guardian, The New StatesmanHorse & Hound, CityMetric, The Art NewspaperThe VagendaThe Point, Teach Secondary and Third Sector. I enjoy writing about a diverse range of subjects from animals to investment, via education, health, arts/heritage and social trends and am always open to freelance commissions. I do freelance copywriting work for a couple of organisations, too, and am happy to consider further projects. (See contact page.)

Giving back is important to me, so I have assisted Historic Royal Palaces with media advice and Guide Dogs with communications work. I was also previously a mentor at the Social Mobility Foundation and I helped out StreetVet UK, a charity for the pets of the homeless, with admin work.

In my downtime I love: horse riding; visiting historical sites/museums; exploring other countries; shopping; going to the movies; and occasionally just sitting down with a good book and snacks.

This blog is intended to be an outlet for musings on life, interviews with interesting people and a review source of all the adventures you can get up to in London or further afield, as well as an an online clippings portfolio. Fashion and animals will also feature.
