CONTENT WRITING: BACKGROUND
My career began in the advertising industry in London, in 2004. After working for a Soho agency as a copywriter, I moved to Brighton and set up as a freelancer. Now, I live in an idyllic corner of Scotland and work with clients around the world.
Over the years I've written for airlines, TV corporations, hotels, credit card companies, national newspapers, and design agencies themselves; for global companies, for people at the top of their fields, and for brand new businesses. My words have appeared in shops, online, on the radio, across the sides of vans, in your email inbox, on bar tables, in first class lounges, and on millionaires' coffee tables.
BA Advertising and Graphic Design, specialism: copywriting
MA Creative Writing, with distinction
A few of the bigger clients I've written for include:
AMERICAN EXPRESS • ATARI • BARCLAYS • BBC • CMED • THE CO-OP • COURVOISIER • DELL • EDF ENERGY • FINANCIAL TIMES • GORDON'S GIN • HERTZ • HEWLETT-PACKARD • HOLIDAY INN • LITTLE, BROWN • MICROSOFT • NECTAR CREDIT CARD • NHS • NOKIA • THE OBSERVER • ROYAL MAIL • ROYAL MINT • SHELTER • SMIRNOFF • THISTLE HOTELS • THOMSON • VIRGIN ATLANTIC • VIRGIN BOOKS • VIRGIN MEDIA • VIRGIN MOBILE • VIRGIN MUSIC • VIRGIN UNITE •
...and there are reams of smaller businesses and not-for-profits that I've worked with too.
