    Freelance Copywriter & JournalistFreelance
    London, United KingdomFreelance
    Copywriting: I write advertising copy as well as journalism features. I love seeing a campaign through from its inception to the finished product and am finely tuned to the nuances of meaning and phrasing. Experience collaborating with designers and photographers as well as working on award entries and campaign conceptualisation for blue chip clients. Research: I write in-depth stories based on thorough research. I’ve also acted as assistant editor on two books and helped convert a seminal book of art to web format, so I know my Manets from my Monets. Interview Skills: I’m an experienced interviewer, having interviewed everyone from tech superstars to Nobel Prize nominees. I have a knack for drawing out even the most reticent interview subjects
