I’m a writer who cares about making things simple, accessible and a little more human. Making stuff easier for people to understand gets me out of bed in the morning.
By day, I write for two of the UK’s top ten most valuable brands (plus a few others) at Sideshow. At night, I co-host Episode Party – a podcast where two hosts and one guest chat about three of our favourite podcasts.
Previously, I was a freelance copywriter and before that, I was Web Editor for Arts University Bournemouth. While I was there, I re-launched the university’s website and worked on the app won the Chair’s Grand Prix at the CIM Marketing Excellence Awards, beating big agencies with bigger budgets.
I cut my teeth in publishing, starting out as Staff Writer and quickly rising to Features Editor at iCreate Magazine. While I was there, I co-wrote the iTunes bestselling iCloud for Beginners ebook
My work’s been recognised by Computer Arts, the Chartered Institute of Marketing and HEIST, among others. But more importantly, it’s left a little less jargon and corporate language in the world.
