I help our clients to create beautiful and user-friendly websites, and most importantly, I make sure that my team has everything they need to do the same. I have over 20 years of experience working in the digital sector, and bring a careful and thorough approach to everything I do.

I've worked with many amazing organisations during my time at Torchbox, from the Multiple Sclerosis Society, The World Wildlife Fund and Greenpeace to Oxford University, Great Ormond Street Hospital and Samaritans. Knowing that I am helping to make the world a better place by working with these organisations is what gets me out of bed in the morning and keeps me motivated.

Our natural world and ecosystems are under a huge threat from climate change, and I want to be part of the fight to prevent that, whether that is by being part of our EOT climate voice group, which works to reduce our impact on the climate as an organisation, or the lifestyle choices I make for myself and with my family.

I have 2 lovely boys who are growing up fast and they are my main focus outside work. But I also enjoy walking and running in the countryside, gardening, reading novels and (geekily) doing the Saturday Guardian cryptic crossword. I hope to soon restart the 2 choirs I was in and I have also helped children to learn to code by volunteering as a code club leader at my local primary school.
