About me, and my work

Do you work for the arts, culture, society, politics, environment or animals?

Chances are, I


want your attention.

Did you get my CV?

I’m still available – as your best bet for journalism, writing, marketing and PR.

I’ll focus, learn your industry quickly to hook your audience and keep them coming back for more online and in real life. I’ll combine intellect (complete with glasses) with creativity (bring me my palette). I’ll work ridiculously hard for you. And inject fun into everything.

Don’t believe me?
