About me

 

I'm an experienced digital professional, with a wide-ranging set of skills from writing and editing, to CMS management and integration to the management of multi-platform and multi-region projects. As a guardian of the English language, attention to detail and the ability to communicate clearly and concisely across any organisation are among my assets, while also managing to stay focused across a range of projects simultaneously. I'm committed and always open to new ideas and have proved versatile and adaptable in every environment I've been lucky enough to work in.
