Media profile + publications

Author of Be A Free Range Human: Escape the 9-5, Create a Life You Love  and Still Pay The Bills published in the UK by Kogan Page, 2013. This bestselling book is in the top 2 most popular entrepreneurial titles on this year.


Featured in newspapers including the Guardian (Weekend Magazine), Sunday Times, Daily Mail (You Magazine), business publications such as Business Week (Bloomberg), CBS MoneyWatch, and Management Today and popular magazines such as Psychologies, Woman, and Zest (as well as numerous trade publications).


Appeared on radio shows and as an expert on national television programmes.

Expert topics (examples) 

Free Range is the new career change. This alternative to corporate life strikes a chord with stressed out professionals who are becoming more disillusioned with ‘jobs’ in this insecure economy and are dreaming of making a (good) living without an office or a boss, getting paid to do something they love, on their terms. I can provide an expert opinion (from the UK and the US) on this growing trend and the people behind it.

I also spent 5 years as a full time world traveller running my business from my backpack and I’m happy to talk about how that works.

Examples of potential interview topics include:

  • Standing out from the crowd in a crowded market
  • Setting up a business for under £100
  • What to do when you want to do everything
  • Making a change once you’re established and have a measure of success (aka the “can I just give this up?” question)
  • Creating a business that works for your personality and strengths
  • Portfolio careers
  • Location independent businesses
