I love people, stories and words. Mix that together and out come the labels of wordsmith, writer, journalist, novelist, hack, plus many more nouns to try on for size. Really I’m just me. Like you are just you. We are base forms awaiting our next linguistic program upload. Words can be a decoy, a tool, protective, defensive, our workhorse and rather wonderfully an explosion of expression so powerful they can make you fall in love, bring peace, start wars, save lives and infinite other events in existence. Words are the No 1 by-product of experience* (see comments below). We need to use them wisely.
After leaving Cardiff Journalism School in 1999 I went into print news journalism, staffing for The Scunthorpe Evening Telegraph, The Lancashire Evening Post and Newsflash, a national press agency based in Edinburgh. In between writing work I have picked up more than a few business tricks from the music industry and marketing and relationship management skills from the arts. I’ve also inflated balloons with helium at the Haydock Races. See Portfolio.
Regarding my style and communication, I like to work closely with clients to create work that is true to what the client wants and work that sticks in the collective consciousness. See Services.
Righty ho. That’s probably enough from me for now, your turn.
