Here and There
I was born in the Garden of England, I grew up in the fast paced Far East, with more leisurely stints in Africa and Mauritius along the way. I feel very privileged to live in such a beautiful part of the country but I regularly travel throughout the UK and further afield.
After a brief stint in the Hospitality Industry, I spent many years in corporate sales, selling direct marketing solutions for Royal Mail. With direct mail a crucial part of the direct marketing mix of many businesses, I found myself with greater exposure to the marketing world. As both an Account Manager and Business Development Manager I worked alongside a range of agencies, assisting a number of large corporations and a diverse group of start-ups, which has given me a broad commercial background.
I have also worked with a host of leading online businesses consulting on both ‘Home Shopping’ solutions and integrating traditional marketing into the online mix. After 6 years in the industry I acquired a Certificate in Direct Marketing, got the bug and followed that up with a Diploma in Direct and Interactive Marketing from the Institute of Direct Marketing. I have worked as a freelancer now for over a decade.
When time allows I volunteer my services to help businesses within the Charity Sector. I’ve worked on the board of a non-profit sports club where I continue to assist in areas such as website management, SEO, Social Media, Fundraising and Ad Sales.
With a one year old daughter,family features quite strongly for me. When time allows you can find me playing tennis, exploring the coast, taking photographs, on camping trips, and working on a Land Rover named Dorothy. I’m partial to galleries, museums and various creative pursuits. I’m a dab hand in the kitchen, handy in the garden and rarely happier than when I’m taking in a good film.
