"Simon stood out to me from his first day in our copywriting academy as a writer with the greatest potential. His innate understanding of not only how to craft persuasive copy, but also the psychology behind it was impressively natural."

(Ella O'Donnell, Head Copywriter at The Creative Copywriter)

I'm a freelance copywriter with a lawyer's eye for detail and an appetite for research.

I've spent most of my working life telling people's stories. For 13 years as a practising barrister, speaking on behalf of people, persuading others.

Now, instead of cross-examining witnesses or humouring ill-humoured judges, I write captivating, clear and easy-to-follow copy. Having graduated from Call to the Bar to compelling calls-to-action.

I'm one of the writers at The Creative Copywriter and I've written for brands such as Thomson Reuters, Aggreko, Ante Technologies and Shakespeare Martineau.

I'm also a qualified proofreader and member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP).
