I am a highly-experienced writer, editor, content manager, disruptive thinker, copywriter and journalist who has written two internationally published books for major publishers.
I write for a variety of newspapers and magazines in the UK and the US. I have written for the Guardian, Times, Observer, Daily Telegraph, Daily Mail, Independent on Sunday, Daily Express and Financial Times, as well as Coast, Olive, Living Etc, Honda Dream, Virgin Hotline, Vegetarian Living and Bizarre in the UK. I am London editor for Dwell magazine and have also written for Nest and American Craft in the US.
I usually write about arts, travel, architecture, people, eccentricity, architecture, craft, Britain and the British people. I can, however, turn my hand to any subject and have a track record as someone who can become expert in a subject in a very short time. I have written on subjects as diverse as Swiss roofing techniques and British culture, construction work and celebrities. I have regularly appeared on radio and television talking about my work.
In my role as copywriter I have completed assignments for HSBC, Channel 4, Hays Recruitment, Transport for London, RatedPeople and the Barbican. I have recently completed a copywriting project and major SEO overhaul of a website for an international recruitment company. They have continued to hire me to create new content and work on SEO writing and initiatives. I have been writing for the web for 15 years and have taught writing for the web, as well as being nominated for European Internet Journalist of the Year. I have blogged for businesses and consulted on efficiency and placement of content.
I deliver clean copy, on time, meaning that you can rest assured that you won't need to send copy back to me for endless re-writes as is the case with less-experienced writers. I have been writing professionally for over 15 years, writing across consumer titles, newspapers B2C and B2B titles. I can work with HTML and am experienced in SEO work for blue chip clients.
As a content manager and content editor I can create content strategy, perk up existing copy or complete an overhaul of your website. I can work alone or with members of your staff to create a cohesive content policy for your business, as well as producing and commissioning video, written content and visuals. I am adept at working with and creating community online using social media and events. I am also an expert in disruptive marketing and ideas.
