I aim to get excellent coverage in the national media - whether it be a television or radio interview, a newspaper serial, a magazine feature or a book review.
Authors that I have ran campaigns for include Davina McCall, Gordon Ramsay, Fearne Cotton, Stanley Tucci, Janet Street-Porter, Monty Don, Rene Redzepi, AA Gill, The Hairy Bikers and Kevin McCloud.
I have worked on subjects as diverse as food, drink, health, self-help and development, parenting, autobiographies, music and sport. I have great experience at co-ordinating high profile book tours and book launches.
I have had a lot of experience in promoting a company’s online profile, ensuring social media is used to the best advantage. I am a regular user of all the major social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram.
I'm a freelance PR based in south-east London, specialising in food and drink, books and social media.
Currently working on the following books: The Noma Guide to Fermentation by René Redzepi and David Zilber, Create Beautiful Food at Home by Adrian Martin, Red and White by Oz Clarke, You and I Eat the Same (edited by Chris Ying) and Sparks by Stephen Leslie.
