I've been crafting engaging, attention-grabbing copy since 2007. I can do a lot of things with words. I can do funny. I can do beautiful. I can do 'buy it now'. I'm an adaptable, experienced and hard-working copywriter with a portfolio covering most aspects of copywriting at the highest level.

Hire me for a sure hand, big ideas brilliantly executed, creativity and storytelling.

I have done lots of digital work (web copy, email, blogs, banner ads, social media, apps, micro-copy, UX), print (advertising, brochures, newspapers and magazines, books, editing and proofreading), video (scripts, storyboarding, VO), brand work (tone of voice recommendations, brand naming, brand workshops) and more. I'm used to working solo, with art directors in traditional teams, in creative groups and large digital teams with designers, developers and UX specialists.
