15 years of experience in Comms, Campaigns and PR gained in 10 years in central government including at No10 Downing Street where I was Head of BAME Comms and worked with Theresa May on the Race Disparity Audit. I started my career at the BBC where I won a place on its Trainee Assistant Producer Scheme and worked across news and entertainment genres before moving on to Good Morning Britain. Ultimately, I love to write and I love telling stories. In my current role, I work with a high net worth individual with portfolios in the TV, entertainment and charity sectors. I look forward to meeting you all soon!
