Me in a paragraph or two:
I’m from East London (that’s in England for anyone from over the pond). But a nice leafy bit. I’m an only child. My parents decided fairly early on that one was quite enough thank you. I always wanted to be a journalist or lawyer but got lured into the murky world of advertising by a boyfriend who took me for a drink in the bar at a large, famous ad agency. So a career in advertising was born. And what a time to be working in that industry. It was the 80’s. There were parties. And more parties. And lunches. And producing the odd commercial here and there between parties and lunches. Quite frankly, it’s a miracle I’ve survived with my liver intact!
Fast forward to today. I am married with two gorgeous grown up children – one of each flavour. My age shall remain private. I just can’t bring myself to admit it. Put it this way – when filling in a form, I’m in the 45+ drop down box. These days I work as a freelance project manager and producer, still in some of London’s top ad agencies whilst training to be a psychotherapist.
And because I didn’t make it as a journo, this is my little indulgence. Thanks for stopping by. Feel free to leave a comment or say hello.
