About me
I’ve now been working in technology-focused PR for over 8 years. In that time I’ve helped software and hardware startups to establish themselves, as well as supporting larger and more established organisations as they continue to grow. Whether generating coverage in tier-1 media outlets such as TechCrunch, WSJ, and Bloomberg, or preparing for conferences and speaking opportunities at CES and WebSummit, I’m at home in fast-paced, forward-looking environments. Having joined Wheely in July 2018 at a key stage in the brand’s ambitious growth, I am currently VP of PR and Communications. A recent focus on the UK press has resulted in our market-leading, chauffeur-driven ride-hailing app featuring in Evening Standard Magazine, Business Insider UK, GQ, ELLE, Techcrunch, and many others.
