After graduating from the University of London with a degree in English, I worked directly for CEO Michael Green at Carlton Communications. I then joined Televisual magazine, published by Centaur Media, where I worked for four years eventually becoming Assistant Editor.
A brief stint on Centaur sister title Design Week followed before I joined Marketing Week writing news, features and editing various sections including the international pages.
Four years later, I was approached by EMAP to edit its then recently-acquired title Commercials magazine - a position I held until going freelance.
During more than two decades working as a freelance features writer, I have contributed to a wide range of titles. Newspapers include: The Financial Times; Wall Street Journal; The Guardian; The Independent; The Times and The Telegraph. Magazines include: The Radio Times; The Mail on Sunday's You Magazine; Personnel Today; Director; Campaign; The Marketer and Wired.
I am an advisory board member for Women in Journalism and co-ordinated and wrote the WiJ report Real Women: The Hidden Sex
