Experienced Features Writer with a demonstrated history of working in the media production industry. Skilled in Copywriting, Web Content Writing, Retail, Proofreading, and editing. Strong media and communication professional with a Bachelors of Art focused in Journalism and Creative Writing from the University of Strathclyde. Other core skills include reporting, social media management, interviewing, blogging, video editing, sketch writing, press releases, features, research, SEO, Google Analytics, web traffic, article optimization, article performance tracking, public speaking, photoshop, infographics, scriptwriting, screenwriting, novel writing, pitching. Friends and colleagues alike describe me as witty, bright, verbose, well-read, enthusiastic, open, charming, hard-working, attentive, innovative, creative, intuitive, empathetic, and a good listener. I am an insatiable bibliophile and a consummate author. I am a published short story writer, and in 2010 I was one of three winners of the Scottish Book Trust's Young Writer's Award. In the last year, I have launched a blog, finished a novel, and co-written a screenplay. But I don't like to wax on developing projects. For me, it's all about sinking my teeth into the next post, the next script, the next big idea. I consider myself a craftsman - someone who will work hard to revise and tweak and fine-tune his copy; who will dedicate hours to making his prose as lean as veal and as exquisite as a Swiss watch. I want to inform, entertain, comfort, frighten, and thrill. I'm ravenous for success. Quick to learn. Eager to please. But most of all, I just want to tell a good story.
