About me

I am currently working as a freelance journalist, copywriter and editor with experience contributing to music, film, TV, sport, culture and humour based websites, one of which is my own creation. I also worked briefly on my university newspaper. I have written LP, Album and Gig reviews for GIGsoup.com and have recently began contributing on culture, comedy and sports to WhatCulture. I have written copy on independent film and television for thevore.com and created my own satirical based website with several other writers as listed on my CV. As co-creator I helped build the site from the ground up as well as handling the sport and cultural sections of the website. Although I also have experience writing in a more objective, typically journalistic style as well. Essentially I like to be creative and take a different, unique approach towards whatever I’m handed. I have experience using WordPress, SEO, MS Office, editing articles, handling social media.
