About me

Currently 24, I have dipped my toes in a variety of industries. Yet all seem to give the same indications to me... I should pursue copywriting. From working within pharmaceutical marketing for six months, freelancing for music magazines in addition to being an Editor for a separate music publication, to becoming a Managing Editor and copywriter for a financial publications company, I can draw upon a large range of experience to aid my writing. ​ Plainly put, I am a young guy looking to carve out a career within creative copywriting. I am currently completing the Blackford Centre for Copywriting level 4 diploma course, which will recognise me as a qualified copywriter. Drop me a message if I happen to be something you're looking for!
