I’ve been working in journalism for nearly ten years, having started my career at a national tech mag before moving through to various other tech-leaning titles, and then on to head up the editorial here at Vodafone Social. I’m big on movies, mobile and gaming, and I’m a bit of a magpie when it comes to new gadgets. My favourite food is cheese. All the cheese.

I’ve been a technology and games journalist for four years now, writing for a wide selection of print and online publications before joining the team at Vodafone Social. Aside from my love of gadgets, gizmos and games I’m also a huge sports fan, so you’ll regularly see me making the most of Vodafone’s long-standing partnership with Sky Sports. Food? Curry me, please.

I’ve been the managing editor of Vodafone Social for coming up two years now, and have worked at Vodafone UK for almost five. I love all things TV, movies and baking (anything sweet, no nuts or fruit!), and every now and then I drag myself off for a run at 5.30am (making more time for TV in the evening!)

I’ve been snapping photos since I can remember, and as an award-nominated astrophotographer and very amateur astronomer I love making the night sky come to life. You’ll also find me out and about on #microadventures, making the most of the outdoors, and of course, documenting it all as I go.

I started my Vodafone career as a Christmas temp 17 years ago, and since then I’ve done every single sales job there is to do here, all over the globe. I’m always finding new ways that tech can improve my travels, whether it’s overseas, or up to see my beloved Lincoln City FC on a Saturday afternoon.

I’ve been a copywriter at Vodafone for the last four years, but I’ve been working for the company since 1998! I love the world of health and fitness, particularly running, HIIT and yoga, and I enjoy trying out sugar-free and whole food recipes too. I have two boys (9 and 11), so my other passion is family life. Raising my kids in a rapidly evolving technological world is fun, but certainly a challenge.

I’ve been writing about music since the last century, a time when a playlist was something you taped off the radio from a Peel session and digital music probably involved someone with glow sticks. I’ve continued to seek out and write about new music in all its beautifully deranged and creative forms, featuring everywhere from the NME, Dazed and Confused, BBC, Vice to Artrocker.
