PIER 55 is my virtual office.  Now based in San Francisco, it has previously been located in Brighton (United Kingdom), in Biscarrosse (on the Atlantic coast of France), in Marmaris (Turkey) and in Cannes (on the French Riviera).

As a journalist, writer, editor and former PR consultant, my range of experience is varied.  I have edited books, magazines and newsletters, and written publicity material and marketing collateral for the business to business, business to consumer, public and voluntary sectors.  My portfolio includes interviews, feature articles, website content, brochure copy, newsletters, case studies and press releases – written for a client base across a broad range of disciplines.  These include lifestyle, animal welfare, the arts and culture, conservation, the environment, humanitarian work, insurance, loss adjusting, real estate, regeneration, space science, tourism and yachting.   I am also a published author.  Follow the links in the menu on the right for more detail.

I also edit and write for ArtsPreview, an international showcase for the performing arts,  and for Riviera Buzz, an online lifestyle magazine for the Côte d’Azur.  I have also recently published my first autobiographical book, The Most Unlikely Globetrotters – the true story of three rescued dogs on a journey from Southern Turkey to the French Riviera and San Francisco – was the lead writer for Monaco & the Sea, and I’m currently working on my next one – San Francisco City of Culture.
