Corporate communications (intranet)

Internal Communications

NAO intranet, December 2019

In 2019 I worked on a major overhaul of the National Audit Office's intranet. Included here is some content I wrote that demonstrates that internal comms needn't be dry—they can be readable and engaging while still conveying essential info effectively.

Science Museum

Soviet Space Posters

sciencemuseum.org.uk, 2017

From 2015 to 2018 I was a Web Content Editor at the Science Museum in London, where I edited other people’s writing more than I wrote myself. I kept my hand in with occasional articles though. Here’s one I wrote to promote Cosmonauts, an exhibition about the Soviet space programme.


Leading the way: Soviet space dogs

Another piece I wrote to go with the Science Museum's Cosmonauts exhibition.


Content Editor

sciencemuseum.org.uk, 2015 - 2018

I was part of a team that relaunched the Science Museum Group web estate: five big websites and some smaller ones. For a time I was solely responsible for daily admin on all of them. I led / edited relaunches of the National Railway Museum venue hire and SMG corporate sites. Click header for links.


Gemma Arterton

From 2012 to 2015 I created and edited content for a leading West End theatre sales website. Gemma Arterton is one of Britain's most sought-after actresses. I spoke with her in the run-up to the premiere of her West End musical Made In Dagenham.


Robert Vaughn

Martin Quinn and Rebecca Benson

The acclaimed stage production of cult neo-vampire tale Let The Right One In was several cuts above standard West End fodder. Its two young stars gave exceptional performances, and the interview I conducted with them was both insightful and entertaining.

Instead of sending Christmas cards, sometimes I've written a Christmas story, recorded it like a radio play in my home studio and sent the recording to my friends. Each year I work a Christmas theme into a different genre; once I did a whimsical take on science fiction, and here's the print version.
