About me

I’ve spent most of my career at the BBC, first as a broadcaster-journalist (with several years as education correspondent) and then as a policy & public affairs exec/report-writer/speech-writer.

I left the beeb in 2011 as a Salford refusenik and now I’m a freelance writer and journalist , with a particular interest in education. I also advise organisations on communications and PR.

In 2012 I helped set up a new education charity National Numeracy and I’m now working to improve the nation’s everyday maths skills (no mean challenge) and to stop the popular rubbishing of maths. I’ve got to know lots of mathematicians and like to think I’m doing something to break down prejudices between two cultures.

I still love words more than numbers but enjoy the interplay between the two: 26 has an obvious appeal. And my birthday is on the 26th.
