I am publishing editor for National World, working closely with the editorial and commercial teams for The News in Portsmouth, LondonWorld, BirminghamWorld, BristolWorld and NottinghamWorld. I have a passion for local, trusted journalism and for promoting the positive in all our cities - whether that's the people, the businesses, the events or anything else that makes our communities what they are. But then again you would expect me to, having worked in local media for nearly 40 years across such titles as the Hull Daily Mail, South Wales Echo, Swindon Advertiser and The News as well as a stint on the Sunday Sun in Melbourne while spending a year in Australia. My life revolves around family, football and food with a low-level fitness regime which covers cycling, surfing and walking. My go-to travel place is Italy - I love the places, the people, the food and the language. Bellissimo!
