I'm a communications director and former journalist with substantial experience working for global organisations, broadcasters and multinational corporations.

I've specialised in business, economics and finance. But I've covered consumer affairs, healthcare, science, personal finance and sport too.

I'm particularly interested in digital media strategy. I have launched and run websites, managed social media and had responsibility for digital strategy at various international organisations.

I've worked in the UK, the US, Africa and Switzerland, for organisations as diverse as BBC, Reuters, Associated New Media, the World Economic Forum and the International Olympic Committee.

Outside work, I'm a sometime canoeist and ocean rower. I competed for Great Britain for ten years. I sometimes apply my work skills to sport too: I ran communications for the International Canoe Federation's 2018 World Wildwater Canoeing Championships, and I frequently provide media advice to sports organisations in the UK and abroad. I'm a member of the World Paddle Awards Academy.

In 2019 I competed in the Talisker Whiskey Atlantic Challenge, rowing 3,000 miles across the ocean in 39 days for Team Margot. Our goal was to raise awareness of the global stem cell register (if you can, please sign up - you could save a life! Go to www.werowyouregister.org)
