all about me......

what I am doing:

I am a freelance sub-editor and writer currently studying an MA in Web Design at Greenwich University.

what I have done:

I have worked in journalism most of my adult life as a reporter, news editor and sub editor and have experience on regionals, magazines and nationals. I now work at The Sun. I am NCTJ trained and have a Journalism and Psychology honours degree.

I am also (most importantly) mother to three children, aged four, eight and 11. I am interested in property and have overseen the renovation of a few - the latest being a bodywork garage.

what I want to achieve:

Ideally I am hoping to combine all of the above. I want the web skills to promote the garage business (please click the garage link to see the very outdated website I am going to attack), a possible future property company and/or my freelancing/writing/children's stories. I would also like to design small sites for friends and family.


I live in Blackheath, London.
