About Me

I started out writing for newspapers and magazines but in the last 15 years have worked extensively within the charity sector, writing about health and disability, international development, social justice and the environment. During the last few years I’ve also worked as a proofreader and copyeditor for a book publisher, as well as a food and restaurants critic.
At Action Medical Research I wrote and edited a suite of publications, including the magazine Touching Lives and the annual Research Review. I enjoyed turning complex copy into engaging stories that helped to change and save children’s lives.
But I can turn my hand to any topic, and have also written about: a grandma in Honduras fighting loggers who were destroying her forest home; sex workers in El Salvador standing up to stigma and violence; ethical producers of fairtrade wine in South Africa; grassroots campaigners in Peru tackling child labour; climate activists using cutting edge technlogy to attend a conference in Bali without leaving their seats on home turfa sustainable fishing cooperative in Sussex working to achieve a farer wage for fishers, and pioneering restaurateurs in Brighton who show how every morsel matters when it comes to social change.
I’ve built my career on the value that every person counts and has a story to tell and I’ve been fortunate to work with a variety of inspiring people and organisations along the way, including: The Guardian; Restaurants BrightonProgressio; OneWorld.net; Livability; NGO Media; Child Hope UK; Matter & Co; The Green Centre; Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships and The Rolfing Space.
Words make a huge difference; not just to ideas but to people’s lives and the wellbeing of the planet.
