Biography

I am a vastly experienced journalist, copywriter and PR and a former trade editor. I am currently freelancing for various trade and consumer publications but also looking to get back into a full-time editorial job.

I am well grounded in liaising with people from all walks of life and working in harmony with editorial/advertising teams and all levels of management. My work is to the highest quality and I don't miss deadlines.

I would be ready for an immediate start for either a freelance contract or permanent employment.
