An instinctive, innovative, impassioned and personable communicator/digital marketer who is always looking for the next big industry thing.
I have developed extremely versatile and well-rounded capabilities, across the entire marketing mix, and built relationships - on a local, and national level - with suppliers, agencies, businesses, non-profit, government and media institutions.
My savvy communication skills have generated sales, attracted voluntary income, entertained, informed and educated a variety of audiences both online and offline.
My proficiency in technical and analytical marketing disciplines, such as Web Design, SEO and Google Analytics, and planning, measuring and evaluating the role of PR in communications meanwhile, round off my specialised skillset.

Projects and campaigns
I led the transformation of the headquarters of the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity at its home in HMS Excellent, Whale Island, Portsmouth. From budgeting and briefing through to tendering and selecting the most reflective images, I fully-managed the delivery of this inspirational branding work.
Royal Marines Band Service
I've run marketing and advertising campaigns on behalf of the Royal Marines Band Service, widely regarded as one of the best military bands in the world. This has led to sell-out crowds at esteemed venues such as Horse Guards Parade, London, and Liverpool's Philharmonic Hall.
Red, White and Blue Day
I have been a key player in the strategic and tactical execution of this tri-service fundraising and messaging campaign aimed at schoolchildren for four years. My digital marketing skills, in particular, have been credited as a key contributor to the success of the campaign, which has raised in excess of £50,000 for its charities in my time and seen more than 200,000 children take part.
From securing newspaper, radio and television coverage (locally and nationally) to establishing relationships with social media influencers and blog networks internationally, I have massively extended the reach and credibility of the brands I have worked with through a variety of earned media relationships.
