My role on the PANZ council is: Immediate Past President. I aim to provide continuity for Council after my term as President, and help drive activity in advocacy, diversity, industry intelligence and international marketing.

My first job in publishing was: Editorial Assistant at Jobson Publishing (Europe), UK

I’m currently reading: Modena da scoprire e riscoprire, a beautiful city guide gifted to me on a recent visit to Franco Cosimo Panini, a distinguished publisher based in this elegant Italian city.
