About me

My work values are integrity, creativity and professionalism.

I’ve been working in broadcasting for over 25 years now, 16 of those at the BBC.

When I began, pundits were predicting the end of radio and the demise of television. Instead, the internet has given birth to 24/7 news, time-shifted viewing, podcasts as well as social media. The opportunities to get your message across are endless… and can be very confusing.

I can help guide you through today’s complex web of communications, whether that’s coaching for a media interview, editing the script for a promotional/training video, producing a podcast or writing your latest press release.

Some fun facts about me:

  • I love asking questions. Always have. I’m unashamedly curious.
  • I’m a pedant when it comes to spealing spelling and punctuation.
  • I was recording a documentary in a remote village in China and the people lined the streets to greet us. It’s the closest I’ve ever come to feeling like royalty.
  • I recorded a “From Our Own Correspondent” for BBC Radio 4 at the time:

  • I once produced HRH Prince Charles at Highgrove. Before I was allowed to meet him, I had to be taught how to curtsey by his Private Secretary.
  • The day Princess Diana died, I was the early morning presenter on BBC Radio Nottingham. Grappling with my own emotions, whilst breaking the news to others, was one of the hardest things I’ve had to do in broadcasting.
