What is the one thing you'd like to tell visitors to the Guild's website?
I am a freelance beer writer and broadcaster based in Brighton.
What you can offer as a writer/beer lover?
As a university academic with a social science background, I am interested in how beer has shaped, and continues to impact, our development within communities across the world.
I achieved my General Certificate in Brewing from the Institute of Brewing and Distilling in 2015. I am a active home brewer and have also been involved in collaboration brews with commercial breweries. I have experience judging and tasting beers.
I produce and present Fermentation Radio Show, a monthly beer and brewing show which can be heard via FM and DAB on Radio Reverb, and is also available as a podcast via iTunes and Podomatic.
What do you like most about being a Guild of Beer Writers member?
I enjoy the support of other Guild members, particularly in terms of staying connected to the ever-changing beer scene. I also appreciate the access to information and resources that Guild membership provides.
