About

Trained journalist in “writing for a living” shock

I’ve only been writing about beer for a year or so.

Before that, I was a marketing exec with a journalism degree, ten years’ experience in writing PRs and a passion for fancy (and not-so-fancy) alcoholic beverages.

I’ve always written stories. When I started writing again as an adult, I realised that the stories I love telling are those with people at the centre. Pub culture has become my favourite topic to explore, from brewing to selling to drinking to sitting around a table with an opened out packet of cheese and onion and talking about every subject under the sun.

Beer is important to me and hopefully, what I write helps bring a different perspective; makes it more accessible, gives it another dimension, or it makes you laugh. I’m happy either way.
