I am a director and co-owner of Moonlight Media, a London-based PR agency, founded in 1998. We are focused on financial markets and financial technology and have been providing global PR as well as a full range of marketing, event organisation and social media services. We work with companies of all sizes, from start-ups to large multi-nationals, across the world, in particular the main financial centres of London, New York, Chicago, Singapore and Hong Kong.

With a degree from City University I began my career developing trading room applications at JP Morgan. At Dow Jones Telerate I was responsible for marketing and product management of real-time data and trading systems and at Financial Times Information I developed the go-to-market strategy for real-time market data and back office systems.

I am a mentor at City University and have been mentoring business start-ups for City University’s CitySpark programme since 2011. I am a Freeman of the Guild of Public Relations and sit on the Court of the Guild as well as the Communications Committee. I am a trustee of Berakah, a multi-faith music charity and advise Emerge Poverty Free, a charity dedicated to alleviating poverty and hardship.
