By day I am a senior analyst providing analytical solutions and business insight for a large pan-European manufacturer which supplies various sectors - I specialise in the Residential market but have a wide breadth of commercial awareness across Res, Hotels, Non Residential, Social Housing, Retail/DIY and RMI/OTC. I can design and implement complex data solutions primarily in Excel where I am an advanced user with 20+ years experience.
By night I am a versatile writer and digital media freelance and can adapt to a wide variety of projects.
I have been published in print via reviews, articles and short stories. I can provide examples on request. I am a regular contributor to Hull street culture magazine Browse.
I created and run my own website which is a growing music archive project, and also manage our social media presence. I am also involved in community radio - I produce and present a specialist show on local radio station Hull Kingston Radio 107.4FM.
I don't stop!
I produce and present a live weekly radio show - the Hull Music Vault - showcasing past and present local music. We also feature the UK's only regional radio chart - the Humber Number One - and live sessions and interviews.
