Writer, Editor

I'm a trained journalist with a penchant for lifestyle writing. My work includes profiles, articles, blog posts, and marketing material for B2B audiences as well as the general public.

I'm a lover of travel, knitting, and sport, and while I don't (usually) get the opportunity to focus on those topics in particular, I'm always searching for new opportunities.
