I am a writer and journalist and my purpose is to tell stories to inspire other people. I started writing when I was eight years old but I didn’t get published until much later. You can read about how I became a writer in ‘How I started writing’.
Before earning my living as a writer, I taught English in Spain. I worked for the language school International House in Huelva and in Madrid. My teaching experience now helps me to create and run workshops.
I spent many years working in the design industry, doing marketing and PR and finding new business for graphic, industrial and retail designers. I worked for several design and branding consultancies in London, including FM Design, Fitch and Landor. I still work with designers to help them with naming and tone of voice.
I do copywriting for brands and businesses and I also generate new product ideas for design companies.
I have worked with social enterprises including We Are What We Do, the organisation behind the book Change the World for a Fiver, and also the Sustainable Restaurant Association. If you are a social enterprise or a start-up, you can read more about how I can help you under ‘Promoting your business’.
As a journalist, I enjoy writing about all the things I love: food, travel, design, gardens, finding your passion in work and life, new businesses and relationships. I have also written a series of books for Ryland Peters & Small.
If you need help with words, ideas or making connections with the right people to develop or promote your project, website or business, then please do get in touch.
