I’m a freelance writer. My background is both editorial and commercial.
As a journalist I’ve written for FT Weekend, The Guardian, The Observer, The Daily Telegraph, The Herald, Scotland on Sunday and The Literary Review. I mainly write about books.
In terms of copywriting, I have written advertorials, brochures, direct mails, online content and press packs – for brands including the BBC, Budweiser, Bupa, Coca Cola, Danone, Disney, Help the Aged (now Age UK), IKEA, InterContinental Hotels, Kempinski Hotels, Macmillan Cancer Support, Marks & Spencer, Schuh and Vichy Laboratoires.
I have an MA in English Literature and French from The University of Glasgow and a postgraduate journalism diploma from London College of Communication (part of University of the Arts).
