My indepth knowledge of sport is second to none, which has been obtained, not only through my skills as a writer, but through it's physical aspect, where i have competed to a very high standard in sports such as hockey, volleyball, badminton and football. This has bode me well for my time as a freelance writer, building up my contacts from a lower level, and working my way towards covering a variety of sport, outwith the footballing whirlwind.
I am quick to knowledge, abling me to grasp a story with both hands and produce an article that I feel is of top class standard.
Despite working as a freelance writer, I have also trained in sub editing throughout my time at university, and have used these skills to great effect.
I have also been renowned for my skills as a copy writer, working on websites that have aided in promoting companies and individuals.
Although with less experience as a copy writer, this is something that gives me great satisfaction. Being able to describe a person, company or location etc with great detail and charisma brings a fantastic sense of achievement and pride.
