I'm a content marketing writer, SEO copywriter and journalist with over 15 years' experience spanning some of the world's leading publications and businesses.

I've worked for the BBC, Guardian, Telegraph, Forbes and a range of magazines around the world, producing both journalism and sponsored content.

Following a career in newspapers and digital journalism at national level I worked for several years as an SEO content specialist in the retail sector. I've also lectured at university on the subject of online writing and SEO.

I've worked with content agencies in the UK, US, Europe and South East Asia for several years and also written for major commercial clients from Very, Regus and DHL to, RBS, Kaspersky and Alibaba as well as SMEs and startups.

I've written about a huge range of subjects, from tech and business, to e-books on the travel sector, politics, world affairs and defence, product descriptions and sales copy, stories from history, features about the (possible) future, pieces on green tech and sustainability, fintech and cyber security.

I've also worked in the British political sector, writing speeches, social media copy and press releases and ghostwriting social media posts.
