Qualifications & Awards

Three times article of the year in the Guardian. Nominated European Internet Journalist of the Year and Travel Writer of the Year.

Described by PR Week as "Fast, funny and quick off the mark".


Copywriter, author, content manager, disruptive consultant and journalist with over 20 years of experience as a professional writer.

I have written for clients such as Channel 4, Transport for London, MyBuilder.com, Borkowski.do, Edenspiekermann, Red Bull, NESTA, RatedPeople, Arts and Humanities Research Council, raTrust, Hays, LastMinute.com, Vivienne Westwood and Joe Corre.

I write to a very high standard and my work on architecture, building, construction, the arts and artists can be found in the Guardian, Sunday Times, Daily Telegraph, FT and Dwell magazine.

My copywriting and consultancy work has a dedicated website at thisidea.co.uk.

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 o 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, charity campaigns and major copy overhauls for websites and apps.

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.
