I started my motoring journalism career with Coventry University’s Automotive Journalism MA course, where I was one of the driving forces behind our own ‘Automotive’ car magazine.
I then spent two years at UKi Media & Events as expo news editor, writing and compiling mainly advertorial copy, but pitching in with features and web news when I had the chance. As expo news editor, I also went along to UKi’s various events to interview exhibitors, speakers and visitors on the show floor.
At the start of 2020, I was delighted to start as news reporter at Business Car and What Van? magazine. There, I looked after the daily web news and contributed more in-depth ‘news analysis’ features, as well as road tests. I also helped with proofreading pages, maintaining social media and I made sure the newsletter went out every week.
Unfortunately, Covid-19 hit parent company NS Media hard and a large number of staff were laid off. As a result, I’m now open to freelance commissions.
