Work history


Senior Account Executive

Frontier PR

Dec 2012
  • I am Frontier PR's home grown talent, having started my PR career at the agency as a fresh faced intern in December 2012. Working across markets including social housing, regeneration, charities and disruptive technology – I spend a lot of my time writing, tweeting and talking to the media to get messages out to the world. I love getting to grips with the complicated issues surrounding my clients to ensure the media gets the full picture. Away from work, I can be found trawling record shops, spending a month’s pay in one go, or indulging my passion for live music at one of Manchester's many gig venues. I also hold a Master's degree in social history, can play four instruments and was once described as a 'man of international mystery' by 6 Music DJ Mark Radcliffe.
