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 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. What was intended to be a six-month trip turned into a decade-long adventure of living in five different countries and backpacking through countless more – with some work along the way.

Fast forward to 2020 and I’m once again UK-based (for now). I have since built on those early years as a journalist by growing my skills as I moved around the world. As a result, I have been fortunate to work with travel and lifestyle companies, arts and culture magazines, festivals and venues, B2B companies and communications agencies.

Today, I operate mainly as a creative copywriter by drawing on my international background to help brands reach their goals through engaging content. I also offer PR consultancy and event management services for clients that are looking for a little more than just content creation.
