PR Director with one of Manchester's leading advertising and communications agencies. Back in the north west after ten years in London, punctuated by a brief jaunt around the world, my career to date has included five years as a Senior Publicist at BSkyB overseeing publicity for The Simpsons, followed by roles encompassing strategic support for the launch of ESPN's new Premier League channel and a coordinating role in the PR campaign for the launch of The Huffington Post UK. A communications expert and interested observer of media trends, my perspective on news has been influenced by a decade spent working in entertainment, television and sport. I also like to travel.
