I’m a member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading, and have worked for the last 20 years across PR, marketing, communications, journalism, publishing, small press comics, charity fundraising, climate action, film, live theatre, and much more.

In that time, I’ve learned that strong writing skills are a swiss army knife. The goals, audiences and effective methods in each case are completely different, but the basic tools are the same.

Whether as a copywriter or as an editor, I can help you find exactly the right approach for the kind of message you want to get across. More importantly, I can support you to develop your own toolbox, to make sure your writing is clear, consistent, impactful, and always true to your unique voice.
