    Given the brief to create and launch a digital brand and title - I was responsible for the concept and brand development, design look and feel, and content creation (written and video) leading a team of freelance writers and photographers. I oversaw the delivery of seven successful issues during the twelve months I worked there, generating over 100,000 downloads from a standing start.

    Publishing EditorExtreme Publishing Ltd
     - London, United KingdomFull Time
    I identified a gap in the market for a specialist publication aimed at off-road motorcycle riders. I developed this idea into a consumer magazine that launched in 1995. Trailbike Magazine ran as a very successful and much-loved publication for 20 years. I also generated two spin off titles, as well as contract-publishing journals for various clients directly. I sold the title in 2015. During this time, I developed a well-rounded set of skills from recruitment and talent management to business management and logistics in addition to my creative skill set.
