About me

I've been working as a copywriter for the past three years in and around London. I started off my freelance career working with an interesting array of start-ups: from those based in the fashion industry to new businesses in the tech sector, I've helped brands communicate their message to the outside world with my wordy know-how. I'm currently helping agencies and freelancers make the most out of their websites, blogs, portfolios and other miscellaneous documents. Many fail to realise that written text is just as important as the portfolios or past work examples they're displaying. That's where I come along with my notepad and pen, or rather the modern equivalent: my MacBook and Microsoft Word. I'm always on the lookout for new projects, so let's talk over Skype where I'll try to avoid any stereotypical British colloquialisms. Although I can't promise that, I can promise a hasty reply. Or, if you prefer emailing as opposed to screen-to-screen chatting, send me a message on LinkedIn and we'll figure out an appropriate plan of action.
