Copywriter, content strategist, editor, and all the rest.
Born in the UK (near London), I moved to New York City in July 2018.
Before New York, I lived in the Netherlands for four years.
A lil’ background
Writing is my stock in trade. My first piece of writing (self-published) was written aged 7, about a girl and boy falling into a magical chest.
Riddled with grammatical errors, no publisher would take it. The stockist has thrown the master copy away.
Putting that setback aside, I’ve worked as a writer, editor and journalist for the last eight years.
My interest in online writing is more than commercial: for my Master’s degree thesis [9.5MB] I wrote about the relationship between the internet and literature. Go easy on me: I wrote it 7 years ago.
I’m sincerely interested in how writing will be shaped by changes in technology; I’m equally interested in how the history of writing can shape technology as it develops.
