I am a London-based multimedia journalist whose current career guise is as the editor of business magazine HealthInvestor UK.
Quite how I achieved that when I arrived in London in 2010 armed only with a classics degree from Cambridge University, entirely undeserved optimism and absolutely no idea how to cook, I’m not quite sure. But I didn’t starve and along the way I acquired a giant cuddly elephant called Errol as payment for one of the many internships I did and presumably some useful media skills.
I do freelance work on the side 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. (See contact page.)
When not working, drinking wine in the name of ‘networking’ or commuting, I love: horse riding; exploring this country and others; visiting historical sites/museums; and occasionally just sitting down with a good book and snacks.
Additionally, I work with Historic Royal Palaces and Guide Dogs providing media advice and assistance. I also do admin work on a voluntary basis for StreetVet UK.
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.
