About me
I’m a freelance writer and brand consultant with extensive experience client and agency-side—from interviewing Bond villains for GQ magazine to racing BMWs with the England Rugby team. I’ve avoided death in the French Pyrenees with Rapha, built websites for the UK Government, and spoken on panels for the Sustainable Brands conference. I believe in the power of words—their ability to affect how we view ourselves, others and the world. So it’s important to choose those words carefully. I love to work with progressive, future-facing and conscious brands within fashion, art and music. Those that use the power of words for good—to communicate, create and connect.
