As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a journalist. I love words and I love working with them. I studied journalism and wrote for a while before establishing myself in the national media as a senior newspaper designer. Now I am using words, choosing words - and making them look nice. I love newspapers, magazines and books, and I believe print is very much alive - it'll just be packaged differently.
I am passionate about sport, photography, film, news, community and equality for all. I have 20 years' experience working in local and national press where I honed a good nose (and eye) for a story and how to present it so that someone, somewhere, wants to read it.
