Freelance Writer

Location icon United Kingdom

I am a 23 year old, adaptable writer. I have made it a necessity to educate myself on many different topics aside from sport where the majority of my writing experience has come. This has also tied with the Politics side of my degree. I have also worked as a consultant for independent wrestling promotions writing scripts for their TV shows. This has continued to broaden my skill set.

My degree (Journalism, Creative Writing and Politics) has made me keep up to date with current affairs in all aspects of society. I have a wealth of experience in sports, playing football professionally as well as holding a handicap of 6 at Golf and competing as an amateur boxer.

I am an outgoing, hard working and adaptable person that give one hundred percent to any task that is put in front of him! This is just a small amount of the articles I have written in boxing and I am more than happy to provide examples of work that relate to the subject of your choice.

Thank you very much for your time and consideration!
