I am a London-based media professional whose current career guise is as a consultant at political lobbying and media relations agency PLMR. Prior to that I worked in journalism for over six years, moving up the ranks to editor of specialist trade title HealthInvestor UK at the grand old age of 25.
I have a sideline as a freelance journalist, and have been published by The Guardian, The New Statesman, Horse & Hound, CityMetric, The Vagenda, The Point and Third Sector. I enjoy writing about a diverse range of subjects from animals to investment, via education, health 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 and Guide Dogs with media advice and assistance. I was previously a mentor at the Social Media Foundation and I currently help out charity for the pets of the homeless, StreetVet UK.
In my downtime I love: horse riding; exploring this country and others; visiting historical sites/museums; and occasionally just sitting down with a good book.
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.
