Founder of the editorial operation at successful B2B news publisher Decision News Media (recently acquired by The Grocer publisher, William Reed) I was part of the editorial strategic team to launch fourteen food, nutrition and beverage business news websites – from an analysis of the targeted reader to crafting the navigational design.
An online journalist and editor for more than a decade I have contributed thousands of articles, as well as audio-visual content, to a wide range of business-to-business publications and for corporate communications. The selection below is but a tiny sample of my published material.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like to see further examples of my work.
