Since then, I’ve worked at numerous full-service graphic, web design and SEO agencies before breaking out on my own in late 2012.
With over 9 years of professional experience at what I do, and over 6.5 of them in running my own business, I’ve often had clients wonder how on earth I know precisely what they’re going through and my reply is simple: I’ve been through it too.
And that’s where my work comes in – having been through this experience myself, I know exactly what needs to be done to help creative folks just like you figure out how to show up in the world in bigger, bolder ways.
I’m a community creator as well as lurker, and love nothing more than meeting new people – even though I’m an INFJ-T and Enneagram 4!
Storm + Jasper are part-black-lab, part-border-collie and are the light + laughter in my everyday. You won’t find me far from them, and if I meet up with you it’s likely I’ll show you pictures on my phone… ?
I use smiley faces in email from the get-go...I write emoji in practically every sentence that I write...I write just like I talk in real life...and I love to call people ‘lovely’. ?
I’ve given talks about everything from discovering your inner superhero, to web accessibility, to how we react to fear, and I've spoken to audiences of 10 people all the way up to 1200. I’m all about being vulnerable + sharing my story with the world – if it can help one person, I’m happy.
I'm from Manchester, which is a pretty big city here in the UK – but the countryside has my heart, and I dream of living closer to the sea, where the air is lighter and so is my soul. (Cornwall is my fave!)
HTML + CSS are second languages to me and I’m a lover of superheroes, Harry Potter, and most other geeky things you can think of. ? (When it comes to superheroes – Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel are my idols, Iron Man is my fave, and Jean Grey (The Phoenix) is my inspiration.)
