I’m the kind of writer who has a lot of fingers in a lot of pies.
I love copywriting for ecommerce, website, automation, and website brands and I’ve ghostwritten and content strategised for some of the largest multinational brands in the world – including an industry-leading international B2B supply chain software company worth $75 million and a sister Q-commerce app-lead world leading brand with a daily turnover of over $1m.
I specialise in translating content for British and American audiences. As an autistic woman in a neurodivergent family, I currently serve on a media-focused disability steering group and mentor several disabled writers.
I won Outstanding Lecturer for the School of Arts, University of Bolton 2021, was selected as a BFI / BAFTA Crew Member 2021-2021, and was named Edinburgh TV Festival’s Ones to Watch 2018-2019.
