Sarah Edwards
EDITOR

A tea-drinking, barre attempting designer/editor with a dubious talent for reciting the alphabet backwards! A lover of gin, country walks and bakewell tarts – not always, but sometimes together!

Matthew Batham
EDITOR

Horror movie geek, lover of pretty much all cuisines and a voracious reader. Londoner born and bred but also very happy to get lost in the countryside. Don’t speak to him until he’s had his first coffee of the day and never challenge him to a karaoke battle.

Lee Owen
GRAPHIC DESIGNER

A graphic wizard who loves eating cereal out of a mug. Hates slow Wi-Fi and losing his usual parking spot.

Patrick Blore
SENIOR ACCOUNT MANAGER

Nicknamed Postie. Aspiring to be the Wolf of the West Mids. A lover of sport (blessed with supporting the best team in the Midlands, Coventry). Partial to a hot chocolate.

Tom Beeston
EVENTS AND MARKETING ASSISTANT

Beer pong champion (team cider all the way) with a mild obsession for Doritos. Not great at conversation before 10am but the king of Dad jokes from
then onwards.

Laura Biskupowicz
EVENTS AND MARKETING ASSISTANT

Needs 5 heaters and 3 coats to start working in the office. Watches way too many TikTok’s and is obsessed with her cat.

Emily Hilton
OPERATIONS MANAGER

A snow-loving winter worshipper, part-time thespian, with county champion eye-rolling skills. Known for her positive “Monica” influence and PhD level organisational prowess.

Zoë Tanner
MANAGING DIRECTOR

A social butterfly with a passion for positivity, sunshine, travel and laughter-filled fun times. Regularly found pondering ideas whilst simultaneously cycling, listening to loud music and playing solitaire on her iPad.

Celia Matthews
OWNER

A vegan-ish coffee connoisseur with a passion for fast cars and a general lust for life, whose foray into plumbing sparked the idea for a publishing powerhouse.
