Contact details

I'm a highly experienced content writer with over a decade of experience, creating content for both private and public sector organisations.

I spent many years working at local authorities, and then four years heading up content creation (and content marketing) for a finservices Big Four rival, before moving into agency work.

Alongside these full-time roles, I've been working (part-time) as a freelancer for the past seven years. During this time, I've created content for a diverse range of clients from the insurance, fintech, financial services, recruitment, marketing consultancy, and SaaS industry sectors.
