About me

Legit wordsmith with a Masters in Creative Writing, looking for mid-weight copywriting/creative roles that are both noteworthy and outcome-focused. My voice is robust, I delight in data-based feedback and I can shuffle my register like it ain’t no thang… but so far I’ve mostly made moguls money without really changing the world. I think it’s time I changed that. I just got back from a few months travelling, always a useful watershed.

Work history

Currently

Freelance Copywriter

Freelance

Sep 2013
  • Freelance
  • I write all sorts of things for all sorts of people, mostly marketing based. DOJO, freelance stuff for PlayStation (couldn’t just walk away), B2B training and development firms, international paid blogging services, unpaid work with Net 1on1 to expand my voice a little (see if you can find me). Wasn’t fussy when I started; I’d stick words anywhere I was asked. I’m fussier now.

2016

Copywriter

Sony Interactive Entertainment

Jul 2015 - Aug 2016
  • London, United Kingdom
  • Full Time
  • Emails! Product descriptions! Print marketing! The back of video game boxes! Online user guides! If they wanted words on it I dang well wrote 'em. Key skills and requirements: knowing more about the products than the Product Managers, writing copy appropriate for 15-language localisations (“This pun will not work in another language, and is hugely offensive in Croatian”), walking the line between PlayStation ToV (inviolable) and the needs of marketing segmentation (nothing is sacred).

2015

Marketing Writer

Sony Interactive Entertainment

Jun 2014 - Jul 2015
  • London, United Kingdom
  • Full Time
  • I wrote all of SCEE's marketing and service emails - plus some other CRM and digital copy - and championed innovation via a heady mix of subversive ideas, joie de vivre and refusing to do anything tedious. Learned more about email marketing than anyone could reasonably wish to, found it was all out of date and learned it again.

Education
