Who we are
Emma was born in South East London but spent her formative years in Tottenham, North London. She is the proud owner of a much-maligned Media Studies degree from De Montfort University. This meant she was able to embark on a career in publishing - both in print and then online. Emma recently branched out into the health sector and is working with government and voluntary organisations doing research with NHS patients.
Emma has worked for a number of high profile organisations, including the National Children's Bureau, Audit Commission and the National Council for Voluntary Organisations. She is a trustee for the National Childminding Association.
When not working on any of the above, or on Pinkstinks, she spends time enjoying her two lovely daughters, visiting White Hart Lane, soulful music, cooking gourmet dinners and eating curry.
Abi was born on the same day as Emma, in South East London, in the summer of 1971. After getting a degree in Graphic Design she dreamed of making films for the telly. After making tea for some time she landed a dream job with Sir Jeremy Isaacs, on the award wining documentary series' 'Coldwar' and 'Millennium'. A chance meeting then sent her off to Peru to make a travel documentary starring herself and another saw her on a 1958 London double decker bus for 8 months, filming a group of 20 somethings and their journey from Halifax in Canada to Lima Peru, travelling at a top speed of 30 miles an hour.
On her return to civilisation, Abi got serious and worked for the next 7 years at CNN International. Since leaving CNN in September 2008, Abi has been freelancing for Amnesty International, The National Autistic Society, Envision & other 3rd sector organisations. Abi has two lovely sons and one lovely husband. Together they enjoy swimming, science fiction films, interior design and making a mess.
