About me
HELLO I have been working as a freelance copywriter and mid weight designer for the past nine months. I’ve developed long and short copy for global tech companies and most recently agency pitch winning ideas for Nokia, Whyte & Mackay whisky and Belhaven beer. THE DIFFERENCE With 10 years of account handling experience I have sat in almost every kind of strategic and creative meeting; not something that sounds instantly wonderful but it’s allowed me to provide and receive feedback and the ability to think of clear and commercial ideas suitable for client responses, quickly. And with a witty sense of humour, a heightened sense of empathy (I cried during Fresh Prince of Bel-Air) and the courage to start a sentence with ‘and’ on occasion, I get the job done. Not to mention a graphic design qualification from Shillington Design College. PORTFOLIO Please visit for clickable portfolio tiles.
