About me

I’m a writer. I always carry a notebook and a pen, or tap things into my phone that later become poems, short stories or blog posts.

In my working role, I connect business to business through words that inspire and engage. I take technical information and give it a human voice. I also run training sessions to help people improve their business writing skills and better connect with their customers.

I enjoy taking sometimes complex and often dry information and turning it into something that’s entertaining and easy to understand. I did that as a BBC journalist on local radio, television and websites for many years, before making the move into marketing. You can find out more about my professional career on LinkedIn.

As a member of 26, I created and co-edited 26 Under a Northern Sky a collection of stories and poems inspired by the music of Nick Drake and a railway journey between Newcastle upon Tyne and Glasgow. I’ve had my work featured in an exhibition at the Story Museum in Oxford.

I’m also a keen runner and triathlete (that’s swimming, cycling and running, one after another – and no, you don’t stop to dry off). I often write about races and events in the North East of England, including parkrun, the Blaydon Race and the Great North Run.

You can find me on twitter.


One thought on “About me”

  1. We would love it if you came to visit us at LA22 9SH and I know we have some ‘behind the scenes’ things to show you that will excite you! Let me know when you would like to come and I will arrange for you to meet the Curator (who is a Geordie btw) and maybe a poet or two.

    We also run our own blog site – take a look and see if you would like to contribute. . .
