Carly-May Kavanagh, Editor-in-Chief

Carly-May Kavanagh is the cofounder and editor-in-chief of The Brighton Seagull. She writes the Monday Briefings, works with our writers to help shape their pieces and keeps everything ticking over. She's a journalist who’s written for The Independent, NME, and most recently was community reporter for the Mid Sussex Times, before becoming head of policy for Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP. In her spare time, she's the publicity officer for the Volk's Electric Railway Association, if you've ever wondered why we cover the Volk's in such pitiless detail.

Adam Englebright, Technical Director

Adam Englebright is the cofounder and technical director of The Brighton Seagull. He makes sure the website stays up and the newsletters get sent out, and also helps out with the writing and editing. This whole thing was this idea, so feel free to blame him. His day job is running a data and analytics consultancy called Cybersyn.

Owen Baxter-Jones is the social media manager for The Brighton Seagull, and is passionate about promoting the Seagull’s ethos of local news for local people. While they currently reside in Hitchin, Hertfordshire, their soul lives in Brighton, and they can’t wait for their body to join it there.
