About Me

I am a Columnist, Copywriter, Blogger and Author.

Clients I have written for include: The Guardian, Out of Home, About the Funeral, Television Heaven, Education Executive, Independent Executive, Discover, My Cornwall, Thrive in Life, Dollar Stretcher, Country Smallholding, Treason Show, NewsRevue, Dranky, Opticopy, Loser's Guide and NuPost. I've also ghostwritten material for a number of businesses in the UK, US and Canada.

My preferred style is informal, conversational and with a sprinkle of humour (or humor). I also do grown-up, serious stuff. My main subjects are: Green Living, Human Interest, Business; Media; Relationships; Education; Mind, Body & Spirit; Humour; and the Arts. I am also happy to work to a specific brief and to do my own research.
