I'm a London-based copywriter and proofreader, specialising in toys and games. My clients range from global brands to non-profits, authors and SMEs.

Before going freelance, I worked as a content writer and editor for funding policy publisher Research Research Limited.

I am also one of the two editors behind award-winning poetry publisher Sidekick Books. My own poetry has been published by Salt Publishing, commended in the Forward prizes and thrown out of a helicopter.

For me, sparing language, constraints and a sense of rhythm and flow sit nicely at the intersection of poetry and copywriting.
