I write regularly for a range of national and international publications. I also have experience as a copywriter, having written advertorial for numerous big name brands (Miller, Tennents, etc). I have got a degree in Communication, Advertising and Marketing and worked for a number of years as a Marketing Executive, which required me to produce copy for numerous bluechip clients (Perot Systems, Serco). I have been blogging for a number of years, and my services can be extended to that. I have a long track record of proofreading and editing of academic papers, essays and theses.
