What I do

DSCN4318
I’m a freelance writer, and I write features, reviews and opinion pieces on topics ranging from mental health to the latest series of Strictly Come Dancing. I’m particularly interested in pop culture, TV and feminism, although I’ve also got geeky enthusiasm for crafting, history and literature.

Alongside my journalism, I’m also available for copywriting work. I spent seven years working in communications for some pretty big companies. During that time I’ve written copy for almost every format going, from direct mail to online to advertorials for national magazines.

How I got here.

My first commission was for the family newspaper I forced my brother to start with me in 1992. I wrote a terribly important piece about the latest series of Gladiators (“Is Wolf as scary as he looks?”)

I then moved onto music reviews for my school and university papers, before entering the workforce in 2008. I spent seven years in the corporate world, working in-house in communications for BT and latterly Sky.

I’ve written speeches, press releases, advertorials, news stories and website copy – amongst many other things. When I wasn’t doing that, I was on the phone to people around the company (and the world) to get the latest news, editing my colleagues’ writing, or consuming way too many biscuits and cups of tea.

I turned freelance in October 2015.
