Since 2018 I have worked as an independent PR consultant, accredited by the Chartered Institute of Public Relations. I mainly work with third sector organisations, independent food and drink brands, festivals and restaurants – a portfolio of clients I have built out of a genuine passion for sustainability, hospitality, food & drink.

In my spare time, I write this blog, co-host a local food podcast, and also do a bit of freelance food & travel writing – you can find details of a few of my past commissions below.
I have written editorial features for a number of food, drink and travel publications, and am always interested in new commissions. Publications I write / have written for in the past include:
