untitledI am first a Meggie, then a Yellabelly. Born in 1982, I have lived in Cleethorpes on the East Coast of England all my life.

Life by the seaside is as you’d imagine, there’s none of the hustle and bustle of the city but the summer months are particularly busy, although in the depths of winter it can resemble a ghost town.

I’m all about content and utilising the latest technologies to capture, create and enhance that content, whether that be through captivating video work, engaging written pieces, eye-catching images or interactive social media campaigns.

The media industry has been my home since graduating in 2002 and I have experience in the fields of education, music, entertainment, sport and the charitable sector. I have won several awards for my written work and have had articles published in a number of publications.

I currently manage communications for a large, regional charity and, in a previous role, I was chair of a national fundraising and communications forum and steering group.

A former Rotarian in Cleethorpes, I like to participate in a number of charitable activities – not just those connected to my profession.

My hobbies are varied and include: sport, music (I play the guitar), writing, travelling, aviation photography, real ale, heritage railways, local history and reading.

This blog will cover all aspects of my life, although I have also developed sites that cover some topics in more detail and those links can be found on the bottom right of the sidebar.

I’m also prevalent on social media and I hope you will join me in carrying on the conversations by using the links at the top of the sidebar.

Thanks for stopping by.
