About me
With seven years’ experience writing and editing across print, digital, social and app content for leading titles and brands, I have developed an appreciation for words with impact. Whether crafting a long-form print feature or establishing a brand’s tone of voice, I approach each job with passion and a commitment to producing sparkling, insightful content. I’m a versatile and efficient worker with meticulous attention to detail and an ability to fulfil briefs as well as inputting my own creative flair where suitable. Travel, property and lifestyle have been my main focus, but my curiosity and knack for learning make me an ideal candidate for diverse projects. When not writing, I’m lost in either a book or nature – long walks and wild swims are my go-to. As are evenings in with the cats.
