Armed with a degree in English and Drama, and practical experience in worlds as diverse as opera, and corporate development, I've written articles for UK publications such as The Countryman and Time Out. I have a regular column in Classical Music magazine (Touring Tales of a Mobile Mezzo) and provide in-depth opera character analyses for the website OperaTalent.com. I also create irreverent opera guides for the mobile phone information services Kwickees.com. I have created articles for corporate newsletters on topics as diverse as culture change in a major insurer to the advantages of database server software for small businesses. I've sub-edited tv listings, rewritten CEO's editorials, and whipped impenetrable business copy into readable shape. My style is informed with an informal touch, plus a generous dose of humour when appropriate.
