I am passionate about writing which tells a compelling story, whether that be in my work, compiling construction industry tender submissions or pursuing my passion for journalism. I am skilled at building positive working relationships to gain the information I need to write high-scoring technical responses and informative journalistic pieces which meet client needs and appeal to readers.
My experience includes bids in the UK and Europe covering roads, rail, marine and tunnels; as well as a specialist knowledge of the Middle East, particularly the Gulf region. I keenly follow current affairs and visit the Middle East as often as possible to renew my Arabic speaking skills.
I am currently undertaking the Postgraduate Diploma in Multimedia Magazine Journalism. In my spare time I write a blog on events and activities in London: lovelondon2015.blogspot.com . Contributions welcome!
