As a PR professional, I have worked in a wide variety of sectors including music (with Vanilla Ice, for my sins), publishing, local government and television. As a TV Publicist I worked on popular programmes such as The Bill, Neighbours, Who Do You Think You Are, Pillars of the Earth and Taggart. My media management experience includes handling drama, death and damage limitation when things don’t quite go according to plan (I’ll tell you all about it over a G&T sometime!).
An experienced journalist I have written for publications including the Daily Mail, What’s on TV, TV Times, Radio Times, We Love Telly and Hello. I ghost wrote a celebrity’s autobiography and, in my mis-spent youth, enjoyed (or endured) a season as a Butlin’s redcoat in Barry Island, now home to Gavin and Stacey.
I sometimes have a quirky but effective approach to publicity and, whilst at Surrey Council’s Trading Standards, I co-created an ad which went viral via YouTube.
