About Alice

Alice Reeves

This is me, enjoying some wine.

I’m Alice – a digital marketer, social media consultant, copywriter and blogger living in the glorious seaside city of Brighton & Hove.

I’ve lived in Brighton since 2005 when I moved here to study English Literature at the University of Sussex. At Sussex, I was Head of News at University Radio Falmer (URF) where I helped the the station win its first National Student Radio Award in over a decade. I felt like a proud mum!

Post-university, I did my NCTJ Certificate in Newspaper Journalism at City College Brighton and Hove, before setting up The Vibe with fellow Sussex graduate Tom Hewitson. In 2010, The Vibe was named one of the Top 10 Non-Aligned Blogs by Total Politics. I was pretty proud of that, too.

When international reviews website Qype launched in Brighton back in 2010, I reviewed local businesses and places as a ‘Brighton Guru’, then went on to write lifestyle articles for the Groupon City Blog.

Over the past few years I’ve worked as the Events Co-ordinator for the Brighton & Hove Chamber of Commerce and as Head of Content for the Deals & Vouchers section of MoneySupermarket.com. Now, I work for Leapfrogg – a Brighton-based digital marketing agency – as their Senior Social Media & Content Consultant.

I also blog about gluten-free dining, recipes and shopping over at The Gluten-Free Dining Guide and host Write Club Brighton, a friendly monthly event where local writers meet up for a drink and a natter.

When I’m not working, event-hosting, eating lots of gluten-free food or blogging, I can usually be found drinking wine, drinking tea, reading books, talking enthusiastically about books, watching rubbish telly, tweeting enthusiastically about rubbish telly or running around Brighton.

Keep in touch by following me on Twitter or adding me on LinkedIn.

  1. probably the wrong place to leave this question, do delete if you feel inclined – just wondering if you’d be interested in reviewing (or just helping promote) a fun exhibition being held at the Hotel Pelirocco throughout the Fringe festival…

    details are posted on our first page and here is a little e-flyer (that annoyingly got a little scrunched by myspace’s automised uploader – seems like a good free place to host pics otherwise – dunno, we’re not the hottest computer whizzkids I’m afraid!)

    thank you for your consideration!

  2. blast – so silly, I didn’t notice the “my comments” link on our dashboard till today… we’re criminally late to this blogging malarky you know…

    our contact email is pzprints@gmail.com – the show still has over a week to go, so still time to help… we’ll even sort you out a small print for free if we get anyone referred from you!

    Thanks so much!

    • I wouldn’t say dying, but it’s definitely changing — mainly thanks to digital/internet stations & podcasting, which I think is a great thing. I loved doing radio work so much, especially the presenting and recording/sound editing. Maybe I’ll get back into it one day…

      • Yes, radio was my first choice for a career. It’s a wonderful medium. Digital/internet stations are great – but who’s paying? Of course, if you have everything you need and don’t need to earn a living, then you can do what you like 🙂
