About me

I'm a freelance communications professional with over five years' experience a variety of industries. In my time I've been an editorial assistant, a community manager, a web editor, a digital communications editor, a copywriter, and a pr officer. The thing that I think underpins all of these roles is a good knowledge of audiences — understanding their needs and how to communicate with them. Permanently based in Edinburgh, I'm always looking for new freelance projects to work on.
