Engage you from the off with humour and obvious love for my subject; ask you what you need and try to deliver what you want and need. Always available, when not actually present for advice or assurance. Open-minded and free thinking.

Experience

Editor, journalist, writer, friend. Works freelance in London for a national newspaper/media organisation; edited regional daily newspaper for seven years; degree in Literature; Irish background; serious sense of humour.
