I started out as a journalist for a regional daily newspaper in Chester, UK, back in the mid-2000s.

That was just before news went digital so my portfolio from those early days contains real newspaper cuttings (so retro).

After a good few years on the job, I was bitten by the travel bug and set off from the UK with a one-way ticket to New Zealand.

The rest, as they say, is history.

What was intended to be a six-month trip turned into a decade-long adventure of traveling the world and living in five different countries. With a few stints back in the UK for good measure.

It wasn’t all about fun in the sun and ticking off bucket list locations though.

There was a healthy amount of work involved with some amazing companies, like iSentia, Wild Bounds, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, Tigers, Liberty PR and Filmfestival Kitzbühel, to name just a few.

Today, as a freelance copywriter and PR consultant, I divide my time between the UK and Austria. I work with brands from around the world and I help them to achieve their goals through engaging content.

So, if you have a story to tell but don’t know where to start, feel free to get in touch. Perhaps we can work together.
