I’m a specialist in business copy and insights into global consumer trends, with 2o years’ experience working on text destined for blue-chip multinationals, and bodies such as The British Council and The World Bank. I’m also a published novelist and scriptwriter.

Well-written copy saves time and money, increases internal workflows through effective communication, and raises customer engagement. Learn about my services here, and email to commission new writing, or to arrange consultancy on content strategy or tone of voice.
