Media-obsessed, the news agenda has played a great influence throughout my working life. From my first part-time job at my local paper and through my various roles in traditional and digital PR agencies, I’ve always wanted to be the first in the know about pretty much anything.

The last six years have been agency-side working with clients to develop their online media presence, with the occasional broadcast and print appearance too. I’ve also managed a number of award winning campaigns with the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) and was a finalist for its Outstanding Young Communicator of the Year award.

I’m always looking at new ways to tie digital PR and link building campaigns to delivering tangible results for clients – with improved search visibility the ultimate goal for any press activity. Gone are the days of AVE.

I’m also keen poker and racket sports player and have represented Great Britain at Racketlon (worth a Google…) on a number of occasions.
