Bio

In February 2019 I launched Business Action, the bi-monthly independent North-Devon business magazine distributed free across the area and online.

Business Action provides the only dedicated business coverage across this area and includes news from all sizes and types of business, across all sectors.

Previously, I was freelance Business Editor of the North Devon Journal for seven years, providing two tabloid pages of news and articles each week. This included providing dedicated media coverage of the area's annual Apprenticeship Campaigns. I also developed the categories, suggested judges, sat on the judging panel and co-presented the newspaper's annual business awards for five years.

Based in Devon, I also work virtually for clients all over the UK and have recently written several series of blog articles: 50 for an educational software developer and 30 for an IT support company.

With experience of writing, editing and proofreading in the corporate world - at British Airways, Baker & McKenzie & Galileo UK - and as a freelance - for The Business Magazine, North Devon Journal and corporate clients - I write on a variety of business topics, especially IT, internet, technical, manufacturing and training.

I write and research news, features, press releases and case studies, and have edited, laid out and proofed entire projects, including monthly magazines, legal books and supplements, employee newsletters and handbooks. I also write a lot for web sites - having perfected this while creating a 7,000 page Prestel site for BA in 1985 - we were too far ahead of ourselves!

I have a degree in English and Latin, and am currently studying part-time for my MA in History with Northumbria University.

I'm more interested in getting the job done than in hospitality - the more free time I have to walk in the countryside, the better. But I am sociable and enjoy working with people I like.
