About me

 

As a freelance writer specialising in website copy and social media content, my most recent clients have included Sister London and Climbing Focus. My creative approach and enthusiasm for each project ensures vibrant prose that places the client firmly at the heart of each finished product. I've worked in a variety of industries, including journalism, entertainment, new media, education, construction, sport and hospitality. From interviews to funding pitches, from sports websites to posts on new technology, I'm experienced in many types of writing. I'm also available as an editor - proofreading the work of others and liaising closely with clients to ensure their ideas remain at the core of the project. Currently I also work as an ad hoc administration professional and researcher for a major UK film director.
