I have spent 16 years working in public relations and marketing communications roles and prior to this I was a journalist, news editor and writer for 10 years, having started my career as a junior reporter at the age of 16.
I use my background, experience and passion for communicating to help businesses, organisations and individuals to be seen and heard into today’s 24 hour digital society.
I have worked for a range of private and public sector companies and organisations, including the Welsh Government, advising on and implementing public relations and marketing campaigns in a wide range of sectors and industries.
I realised early on how the world of PR and media relations was changing rapidly with the onset of digital and social media and immersed myself into opportunities and ideas that integrate all communications. I'm still looking ahead at what's around the corner.
I work closely with journalists, bloggers, online media and marketing partners, developing ideas that create on and offline opportunities.
I'm also a writer and photographer and undertake specialist projects and commissions that incorporate written and visual content.
