About me


Current role: Assistant Editor, BBC Online, specialising in significant social media projects. At heart, I’m a creative person. I love to write, read, play, edit, and curate. For many years I've worked at the BBC, which has given me amazing opportunities to use and develop my creativity. At BBC World Service I was a radio producer. I made music programmes, from chart shows to documentaries, in all genres from pop to rap to jazz to world. Two of my documentary series were runners up in the Sony Radio Awards. At BBC Editorial Policy I helped BBC people work out complex editorial, journalistic and moral dilemmas. I project managed three editions of the BBC’s Editorial Guidelines as a book and a website. I edited the Guidelines, and ensured that every BBC programme maker got a copy delivered to their desk. I developed my skills in digital and social media. In BBC Future Media I became a Social Media Executive. I edited the BBC Internet blog, one of the first “corporate” blogs in the BBC, using my core skills of writing, commissioning and copy editing. I ran the BBC’s moderation service, a half a million pound contract with an external supplier. Moderation is fascinating: you’re making sophisticated judgments about how people behave online. I ran H2G2, a user generated content site with a loyal and lively community. As Assistant Editor, BBC Online I am in charge of rolling out Social Flow to the BBC. Social Flow is a publishing and listening tool which the BBC has procured to better manage official Twitter, Facebook and other social media accounts. Why would you want to work with me? I’m smart: sometimes I’m the smartest person in the room, but I want to be in a room with people who are smarter than me, so I can learn. I love interrogating new ideas and concepts. I’m creative: I come up with at least one new idea every day. Words are my business. I’m practical: I get things done, by whatever route necessary. I’m good at running teams: I love hiring, managing and developing people. If you'd like to meet me, get in touch.
