I have over 12 years experience in writing, journalism and sub-editing.
I write and edit copy on a range of different subjects, but have specific experience in writing for insurance, finance and travel websites.
I have experience of leading a team, working to tight deadlines and writing to tight word counts.
I have knowledge in a wide range of topics, including politics, current affairs, sports and arts, but consider myself an information junkie and am always keen to expand my knowledge.
