Welcome to my site!
I’m a BAFTA winning journalist and film maker, who reinvented myself as a senior manager and communications director. Today I am using all that experience to help individuals and organisations tell their stories
I realised I’d found my vocation when I started a student newspaper at school. Since then I’ve travelled the world, working for regional newspapers, national magazines, and international TV current affairs and documentary programmes.
I love telling stories through film. Films convey information on so many levels. It’s a powerful way to give people and organisations a voice. My new film making cooperative, Forgebank Films, aims to do just that.
After 25 years in journalism, I decided it was time I stopped observing and began doing. So I became one of the “bureaucrats” I’d been watching for so long. Seven years leading communications departments in the NHS and higher education followed.
People understand stories, they remember them. An organisation’s story captures its essence, containing its strategy and vision in a few lines. It takes some digging to discover, but when you find the right story, it just works.
