Contact

Hi there, I get a lot of emails from people offering everything from SEO services to monetisation opportunities and the keys to the gates of Xanadu. Whilst I do enjoy laughing at these emails and their blatant disregard for the actual content of this site, my inbox is starting to buckle a little, so please only use this form if you have a genuine need to talk to me rather than sell me something I probably don't need. Thanks in advance.

WORK

I'm a marketing and communications strategist. I've spent 15 years helping global brands to build more valuable relationships with their target audiences.

I'm currently Client Strategy Director at Zone, working with brands such as Adidas, Aviva, Twitter, John Lewis, Nike, British Red Cross and the London School of Economics.

My work centres around three things:

- Planning and delivering content and campaigns
- Defining and optimising products and services
- Transforming skills, processes, tools and cultures

My full CV is here.

LIFE

My debut novel, Never Quite Buried, is due for completion as soon as I stop doing incredibly distracting things like moving house and having children. The premise is this:

Pete and Brett are teenage best friends. It's the 1990s, the Berlin Wall is down and the War on Terror is yet to begin. Anything's possible, and with Brett's help, Pete is destined to escape his overbearing mum and her irrational fear of God.

But when Brett kills himself on the eve of their adulthood, Pete refuses to let him die. If growing up with Jesus Christ in his face taught him anything, it's that things don't have to die. You can keep them alive forever.

Pete takes Brett's name, wears his clothes, walks his walk and talks his talk. It's easy at first, but as the years go by and the memory of the world they grew up in becomes more and more obscured, Pete's life spirals further from reality. Can an unlikely friendship with a woman named Rebecca save him, and finally bury Brett?
