If you’re a business or a marketing agency looking for an experienced, versatile copywriter, please read on.

After quite a few years in the cut-throat world of business, I realised in my forties that writing is what I most enjoy doing, so I opened Bishopsgate Copywriting in 2010. It was a revelation to learn that people liked my work and, even better, were happy to pay me to write content for them.

My background is in commercial banking, retail product marketing, corporate communications and financial journalism. Some of my clients come from the financial sector, because of my banking industry experience, but I take on copywriting/content writing projects in most sectors (not beauty or fashion though...happy to leave those to others!)

Apart from all the usual types of copywriting work, I’m adept at writing magazine articles and longer features. Having been a magazine editor I’m also a skilled interviewer.

I’m a regular blogger too – I blog for some of my clients and also write a personal blog which is pretty eclectic – travel, food & drink, business, sustainability…even gardening!

According to my wife, I spend too much time on Twitter...please give me a follow and let's connect.
