About me
Seasoned creative writer, obsessing over words and crafting content. Over the last 20+ years, I've worked with a varied and colourful collection of brands, clients and agencies. Specialties: Creative copywriting, scriptwriting and conceptual creative. Well-versed in the world of popular culture and new media, including experience in the music, events and entertainment industries. Real talk: I don't hide behind industry buzzwords, daft business speak and needless initialisms. Get in touch for practical help with words (and transparent rates). Fun fact: I'm one of the first here! #HereSinceDayDot

    Back when Macs got colourful (Macintosh Color Classic) and there was a small buzz about this new thing called the World Wide Web. Computers were still for nerds though. We just wanted mags designed by David Carson and Illmatic on heavy rotation.

    I drove my 1979 Leyland Maxi to a lot of raves. Kelly Slater won his first world title and Eric B and Rakim parted ways.
