Hi, I’m Richard, a bilingual communications specialist based in Cardiff, Wales.
After two decades of working in media and communications, I’m now freelance. My aim is to focus on helping good causes to create a better world.
I learnt to tell clear, simple stories as a journalist at ITV Wales, where I reported on everything from elections and floods to health stories and celebrity interviews.
I went on to manage communications at the Sustainable Development Commission Wales, and then joined WWF Cymru, working my way up to becoming Head of Communications. While there, I grew the charity’s social media presence to one of the biggest and most influential in Wales, campaigned for the ground-breaking Wellbeing of Future Generations Act, and secured media coverage on BBC Wales, the Guardian and the Western Mail. I also managed the Earth Hour campaign in Wales, held political events and launched reports, as well as developing WWF-UK’s first ever blog ‘from the field’ in Kenya.
I’ve been a regular spokesperson in Welsh and English on TV and radio, and co-founded the Seismic Wales podcast. Outside work I enjoy growing vegetables, cycling, politics, nature/the environment and amateur radio.
