I am a writer, editor, trainer and researcher. My work spans the livelihoods, health, education and management sectors, mainly in global development.


I specialise in designing open and accessible communication strategies for research institutions and programmes. I am a strong advocate for the use of open access to research, particularly for agencies and individuals in the Global South.

I love using creative methods, such as writing creative non-fiction books and ebooks, recording podcasts and audiobooks, and creating digital stories and infographics to share research with multiple audiences.

I also love training researchers to write policy and research briefs and lay summaries of their research. I am trained by the Plain English Campaign.

I am very happy editing and translating long and complex academic texts to share via print and digital platforms.

I have 25 years’ experience of managing large communication hubs and diverse portfolios of books, journal articles and briefs, and promoting these to international audiences using strategic communication plans.

Subscribe to my newsletter or podcast and I’ll send you emails around once a month, sometimes less, and on the odd occasion more frequently, for example if I’m launching something.

Plus, I really like sharing and I’m good at it (ask anyone I’ve mentored). It’s part of my maven/connector personality.
