Senior Copywriter   Available for work

Contact details

Hello. I'm a B2B specialist who doesn't see why business copywriting should be boring. And if I love a product or service I'm as keen as mustard to work on B2C campaigns too. I'm also co-founder of the Professional Copywriters' Network, a published author, a former teacher and magazine journalist and have contributed articles to The Times and the Guardian. I have also served as a borough councillor in Colchester.

I love long copy ads, feature writing, excellent coffee, copywriting history and helping clients to succeed. Once in a while at least four of those things come together.

Please browse my portfolio, and if you like my work get in touch. I'm looking forward to hearing from you.
