My entire career has been spent working in news media. I worked as a picture editor for global news agency Reuters for almost 20 years where I initiated, refined and delivered fast, high-quality news, business and sports coverage, as well as entertainment pictures from around the world. Before Reuters I worked at The Financial Times international picture desk, embracing the crossover era that went from printing in the 'wet' photographic darkrooms of ‘Fleet Street, to the digital picture desks of the newsrooms that we know today. Image manipulation, montages, cutouts for newsprint became my daily tasks. I’m an Adobe Photoshop expert who remembers Photoshop 1.0 very well! Prior to that, I was a hand colour printer for a sports photographic agency and the club photographer for Queens Park Rangers FC. I have a degree in Photography and Multimedia from the University of Westminster in London. I am now happily settled in Tobago with my husband, former Reuters photographer Piotr Andrews, who I sometimes partner with on my web design work.
