About me


I'm a commercial and creative writer, looking to build a career as a copywriter across a variety of media and content requirements. Brand junkie, ad monkey. I'm a storyteller - I always have been. Longform, shortform, one-word form, council tax form, I live and breathe the nuances in every aspect language. 3 years' professional experience in media & communications. A keen eye for detail with the ability to spot (and be irritated by) the smallest of grammatical errors, excellent memory, fast-learning. Check out my portfolio for a little more, or LinkedIn page for the rest of the box-ticking (education, work history and so on).
