Director at Distinctive Communications
As a public relations professional, I help organisations communicate well, engage the public and build trust in their work.
I am owner and Director of Distinctive Communications in Bristol. I’ve worked in the South West since moving from Manchester in 2010.
I care about people and places. Both regularly amaze me by their ability to adapt and cope with change. Conversations about how places and businesses can be a force for good and improve lives inspire me.
Before returning to agency life in 2015, I spent five years in the communications team at the Homes and Communities Agency (now called Homes England). The HCA supported around half of all of new houses built in the South West during that period.
Before working in publications relations, I was a journalist. I worked nights on the Sheffield Star, days on its sister paper the Doncaster Star and on papers in Reading.
Pembrokeshire born and bred, I’m seen at the Druidstone or in Broad Haven when home. I worked behind the bar at the Dru for a few years (a long time ago).
After living in Manchester and Sheffield, I live in Somerset today, with my wife, two kids and various pets.
