History

I do words

I’ve been writing full-time since 2003. Freelance by choice, I divide my time between writing copy for clients and writing features for consumer magazines. According to my Dad, I always said I wanted to be a journalist when I grew up (I daresay I didn’t know what a copywriter was back then).

I do sport

Away from my desk, I do a lot of sport. Triathlon, running and road-cycling, but my niche is open-water swimming. I’ve swum around Jersey and across the English Channel…twice. I’m as happy to talk to clients about triathlon and open-water swimming as I am to chat about writing, but watch out: I’ve taken clients swimming in a local lake on more than one occasion.
