An experienced journalist and editor, I have covered everything from airport terminal architecture to employment prospects for reformed drug addicts.
I write both features and news.
I am a former deputy editor on Passenger Terminal World, and have held positions at Personnel Today, The Grocer and Brewers' Guardian, as well as spending six months on a contract basis at Management Today. I have also written for Harpers, PMLiVE, Air Cargo Week, Women's Walking and The Friend, a Quaker magazine.
I have podcasting, subbing and proofreading experience, too.
