I'm a Birmingham-based freelance journalist and communications specialist with an extensive writing career spanning more than 20 years.

With versatile writing skills and a nose for a story, I can turn my hand from news and business articles to lifestyle features including theatre reviews, travel and celebrity interviews.
When it comes to interviews, I have talked to people from all walks of life - from protesters to grieving families; celebrities to chief executives and politicians (including Theresa May and Tony Blair).
Published in a wide range of media including The Mirror, Woman's Own, The Birmingham Mail, The Birmingham Post, SME News, LuxLife, The Express & Star, Fused magazine, Behind The Arras, Weekend Notes and more.
On the corporate side, I have created consumer guides, website content, social media campaigns and case studies for leading national bodies and charities including RoSPA, the Legal Ombudsman, the FTSE-250 company Paragon Banking Group, Sanctuary Group and Anawim.
