I'm NCE's News Editor and love nothing more than hearing all the gossip, news and views from the industry's key figures - so do get in touch if there's a burning issue you want to see in NCE's news pages. I also maintain a healthy focus on the key beats of transport and business stories, while keeping my nose in all things NCE - I struggle to leave behind my old role as the magazine's features editor. In the four years I've worked at NCE and its sister magazine Ground Engineering I joined the jet set and have been lucky enough to cultivate a love of some strange and wonderful places - from Albania to New Orleans.
