You just need the right words.

Whether you’re writing a soppy birthday card or a call to arms, your audience doesn’t want fancy-footing or complexity.

They want a feeling.

A story.

I have what you need.

I’ve been writing professionally for 12 years. I’ve ended up with two hats. You will love them both.

The first hat says creative writer. I wear it when I’m writing poetry and short stories and performing spoken word.

The other says collaborator. I wear this one for blurry briefs.

When we work together, you choose which one I wear. That means I can go away and write something for you, or we can play in the mud together.

Creative writer: I will write you a short story or poem

Engaging stories to get your history hanging out and your audience leaning in, learning, crying, laughing along.

Maybe you have a person, a place or a theme to get things started. Give me the scent and set me off on the chase.

Collaborator: we’ll work together in film, workshops, scripts, art-meets-words

Maybe you have a concept or a platform or a few skills of your own. Maybe you need to add a writer to the team. I’m always open to new ideas, especially when there’s no ‘goal’.

Full disclosure: I prefer it when we share a point of view.

Put a professional storyteller on the job.

I’ve stirred up hospitality, festival, travel and surf audiences all over the world. In-house copywriting, brand building, content management and a good chunk of SEO consulting in London agencies. I don’t love the technical stuff (can’t we just throw some paint around and see what happens?), but I bloody well know it.

I’ve been around the block, and every person, client, business and campaign has had one thing in common: interesting stories told well.

Check out some of the nice things people say about me or my abridged CV on LinkedIn.

But first…

I won’t touch anything without knowing the good bits – that’s you, your partner, your place, your values, your audience, the works.

So let’s get to know each other.

I’m not always free to take on new projects. If you know there’s something on the horizon get in touch now.
