About me

Training as a documentary filmmaker and visual artist at the University of London, I have since worked in a diverse range of fields in a creative capacity - from travel marketing to agency life and full circle to producing copywriting, photography and travel/outdoor lifestyle content - for myself and for others. Essentially, my love is finding and telling a great story. I work with brands to help them do this - and I've worked with architects, graphic designers, tensile fabric experts, sound producers and music studios to extract their unique creative personality from their stories. I am inspired by the fact that although the routes we take to achieve our goals are similar, it's the people behind those stories that make a certain brand or company absolutely unique. I aim to showcase these parts of the story. It's much the same in my photography and writing for national publications. I have a passion for promoting rural crafts, wild landscapes and old ways and traditions. I enjoy speaking to people with passions we don't all recognise, but which we all accept are universally important. I've been published by Guardian Travel, The Ernest Journal, Coast, Countryfile, Discover Britain, Reclaim and The Dartmoor Magazine amongst others. I am available for freelance contract work, part time positions, solving one-off catchy copy conundrums or simply providing brand communication, storytelling and social media consultancy work.
