Biography

I have been a journalist for more than 30 years. I have mentored dozens of journalists over that time and built up a wealth of knowledge and experience in reporting, law and politics, mixing traditional skills with the latest digital storytelling techniques. My most recent jobs include deputy editor of The Bath Chronicle and regional editorial trainer for Local World/Trinity Mirror. I still write regularly, including a blog on journalism – which I still believe is the best job in the world. I love teaching and I love being a personal tutor – it’s a real privilege and a great source of pride.
