About Jess

I am a freelance journalist living in Norfolk. I specialise in motoring, business and technology features. I’ve written for The Guardian, British Airways’ The Club, Jaguar Land Rover’s InMotion, Business Review Europe, and I’ve also discussed motoring topics on live national television, and am BBC Radio Norfolk’s motoring expert.

As well as being a journalist and content creator, I also work in motorsport and run Racing Mentor. Through this, I coach racing drivers on the skills needed to secure sponsorship and climb the motorsport ladder. In 2018 I wrote a book on motorsport sponsorship called Get Paid to Race. It is now being touted as ‘the sponsorship bible’ by racing drivers all over the world.

Through the agency Jet Social, I also provide content strategy and creation to the automotive industry.
