Paul Allen, Director
I’m a writer, journalist and former editor for the BBC. I started my working life as a translator in Germany, before returning to the UK to work as a freelance journalist.
In 2007, after six years writing for the national press (first on music / film and later specialising in social enterprise and welfare), I wrote my first book, Your Ethical Business – a guide to starting a ‘company with a conscience’. A year later, I joined the BBC to launch the environmental website, BBC Green. After getting the project off the ground, I left to start up Lark with Anna.
Away from the laptop, I like learning languages, playing sports, and dreaming up usually impractical inventions.
