About me

 

I'm a creative with a passion for telling a good story. A copywriter by trade, I’ve spent the last few years working in agencies in the UK and Europe for some of the world’s biggest brands. B2C or B2B, I get to the heart of the client's problems and use words to captivate people's attention. Quickly. Profitably. Painlessly. As my career develops into creative leadership, I'm always looking for the best ways to transfer my love for craft to the team, make the work fun and create campaigns that have a lasting impact. But it's not all about the job. If I'm not putting pen to paper you'll probably find me training for an endurance event or indulging my other passions in life – coffee, cake, travel and music.
