Copywriter, author, content manager, disruptive consultant and journalist with over 20 years of experience as a professional writer. I believe I am among the very best copywriters working in the UK and globally.

I have written for clients across business, charity, quangos and politics, including Channel 4, Transport for London,, Edenspiekermann, Red Bull, NESTA, RatedPeople, Natwest, Arts and Humanities Research Council, Debt Hacker, Child Poverty Action Group Hays,, Vivienne Westwood and HSBC.

I write to a very high standard and my work on architecture, building, construction, youth subcultures, fashion, the arts, campaigning and artists can be found in the Guardian, Sunday Times, Daily Telegraph, FT and Dwell magazine. I also write about these topics for commercial clients. I work both remotely and in-house, taking on contracts or working ad hoc, as needed.

My copywriting and consultancy work has a dedicated website at

I have written two books for major publishers and am comfortable writing for online or for print, producing short SEO-friendly copy that will keep people reading or blogging in your brand tone of voice. I am at home generating ideas, writing charity leaflets or penning 4,000 word essays for artists' catalogues. I have also been called in to deliver corporate emails, UX (User Experience), charity campaigns and major copy overhauls for websites and apps. I have written financial copy and terms and conditions for online and offline business.

I am known as an innovator and am often ahead of the curve, which is why I have also been asked to carry out re-brands and re-thinks for major PR agencies.

My work is cited in several dictionaries, is part of the Open University English syllabus and has inspired several university research projects. I am also director of a company that deals in social history and the arts, which is one of my specialisms.
