I use words to prompt action from your customers.

My favourite copy is short, sweet and sometimes sweary.

I'll boil your message down to its core essence.
Like a chef reducing down a jus.

Then I'll add in some personality.
Like the class joker farting in assembly.

I do...

🔹️ ad straplines
🔹 posters
🔹 billboards
🔹 ads projected onto the moon
🔹️ hero copy
🔹 villain copy
🔹️ naming projects
🔹️ core messaging, values
🔹️ ad scripts
🔹️ landing pages
🔹️ socials
🔹 anti-socials

A bit about me...

I have a beautiful clickedy-clackedy keyboard. I'm not saying it gives me the edge over other copywriters but I'm also not *not* saying that.

I have two daughters (who I love more than the keyboard - this list is in no particular order).

I believe gherkins/pickles go with any savoury dish. Prove me wrong.

For a decade I represented Great Britain in a sport you've probably never heard of.

I'm patient, a good team player; completed Grand Theft Auto 5 with my husband without getting divorced.

Get in touch for copy with character.
