Tell us a bit about yourself?
I’m married with a grown-up son. I was born in Muswell Hill, grew up in Friern Barnet, went to school in Finchley and now live in Palmers Green, so I am a north Londoner through and through!
Where did you work before The Switch?
I worked as Corporate Responsibility Manager at TI Media – a media company that published more than 40 magazines, both in print and with digital content. Some well-known brands were Marie Claire, TV Times, Country Life and NME.
What are you looking forward to working at The Switch?
I am looking forward to being part of a team that really cares about making a difference to young people’s lives and delivering on that.
I’m a history nerd and I love theatre and film.
What is one thing you have learnt over this very strange time?
How much I enjoy staycations and finding new, wonderful places to holiday in the UK. I hate airports and flying and have been pleased to avoid that.
