Using a combination of journalistic and production skills, I can write single features or edit entire publications to very high standards within the budget and deadline specified.
I have researched and written articles on many different subjects for newspapers, magazines and websites, and edited and designed reports, newsletters and books for clients in both the private and public sectors.
During my career, I have worked in the following fields: business, construction, crime, education, engineering, environment, farming, finance, healthcare, history, industry, local government, motorsport, politics, property, science, technology and transport.
One of my key strengths is being able to turn complex information into clear, concise and lively copy, enabling clients to communicate effectively with their target audiences in print or online.
