The week after I graduated from university, I started my first job on a local newspaper. That was in 2004.
Since then I’ve worked for local, regional and national publications, working my way up to becoming chief reporter at the UK’s national news agency, the Press Association. I’ve covered some of the biggest breaking news story of recent times, from high-profile court cases such as that of Rolf Harris and the phone hacking scandal, to the 2012 Olympics in London.
I’ve travelled across the world covering major stories, from murder trials in the United States, to royal visits in Australia, and I’ve been embedded with British troops in Afghanistan. I’ve interviewed politicians from David Cameron to the former Iraqi Prime Minister, spoken to injured troops, royalty and many, many others, and built up a reputation as a fast, accurate news reporter who gets the job done.
I left PA in 2014 to take up a role as chief journalist at telecoms website Cable.co.uk, where I helped the team build a reputation as a respected source of telecoms news, with stories and investigations followed up across the industry and in the wider national and regional press.
After years at the sharp end of news reporting, I’ve spread my wings to combine years of experience and skill as a journalist with new skills I’ve learned about online writing and digital content, writing features, blogs, and copy for websites, and continuing to build my own, already successful, food and lifestyle blog.
