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.
