Hi. Hey. Hello.

Finding the right words is tricky.

People pay me to play with words. Because words are important.

Words can confuse. Raise a smile. Paint a picture. Cause offence, anger. Make you switch off or zone out. Stir emotion. Spark a memory. Engage. Educate.

I help brands, clients and small businesses get their message across to the people that need to hear it. I add a human touch, so good ideas don’t go to waste. And in a way that doesn’t make them sound like a corporate robot.

Choosing the right words is an art. But more than that, they can help you stand out from your competitors, shape relationships with your customers, even save you pennies (and pennies make pounds).


Kind words...

“the sort of mind that I imagine must be able to put together a 1,000 piece jigsaw puzzle”

Leigh is a fab writer. I was lucky enough to manage her while we were working with a large financial company. And during that time, I regularly heard about how she was a solid wordsmith. But also that she was able to absorb and somehow remember the intricacies of the industry. She has the sort of mind that I imagine must be able to put together a 1,000 piece jigsaw puzzle in her head. But instead of a jigsaw, it's a thousand letters. And she's making sure they all fit together.
