May you always have a shell in your pocket and sand in your shoes
Living on the Isle of Wight, you're never far from a beach, and I know I'll never lose the thrill of hunting the shoreline for coloured gems of sea-glass and shells that come home to adorn window-sills or fill glass storm lanterns...or just to live in my pockets, reminding me of another perfect day at the beach.
But it wasn't always so. Born and brought up in London, where I worked as a television director for the BBC and Channel 4, I moved to the Island fifteen years ago to be with The Sailor. Two little nippers followed, and whilst officially they'll always, like me, be 'Overners', the Isle of Wight is home.
Since moving to the Island, I have focussed mainly on writing, script-editing and social media marketing, with the occasional corporate video for local businesses. Recent articles have appeared in COAST Magazine, Island Visitor, Style of Wight, the Isle of Wight County Press, and Olive Magazine's website. I also wrote a 75-page guidebook to the Isle of Wight for The Royal Hotel and, most recently, contributed to the cookbook Nammet. @pocketfulofstones is my Instagram account, showcasing my favourite facets of this beautiful island.
