“Media is the unsung hero in the maritime world”
I’m a passionate maritime editor and journalist working with a number of well-respected shipping-related companies and organisations. With over 20 years of shipping industry experience, across all sectors, I pride myself on delivering deep insight on the sector and making powerful connections.
Specifically, I’m the Editor for a number of maritime publications, namely Shipping Network for the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers, The Sea for The Mission to Seafarers, Breakbulk magazine, Marine Professional for IMarEST, and the Baltic magazine for the Baltic Exchange. In addition to this, I work on regular projects including some with Compass and the International Association of Classification Societies Annual Review.
I’ve also been heavily involved in two of Compass’ recent projects: UKPorts2020 in co-operation with the British Ports Association and the UK Major Ports Group and Maritime UK’s annual review. Both have been enjoyable projects to work on, requiring that I gather thoughts and comments from the respective memberships and use them to create unique articles for each publication
As an international Editor, my overarching philosophy is that quality journalism, production and professionalism will always win out over content that needs bombastic design — rather than well-sourced and well-written editorial — to retain attention. I passionately feel that there is never an excuse for ‘cut and paste’ journalism and carry that through to everything that I do with all my publications.[button title=”View Website” icon=”” icon_position=”” link=”http://carmarmedia.co.uk” target=”_blank” color=”” font_color=”” large=”0″ class=”” download=”” onclick=””]

In my opinion, media is the unsung hero in the maritime world and all-too-often woefully underappreciated. As a proud trade journalist, I revel in the challenge of delivering informative and engaging information that mainstream journalists would not be interested in.
