Work With Me
Writing, Copywriting, and Editing
From blogs to trade magazines, and from consumer-focused to academic publications, I benefit from a wide range of writing experiences meaning I can easily cater to all writing and copywriting needs to support your publication or brand.
A list of the consumer and trade publications I currently contribute is available on my portfolio page.

Alongside my writing, I also offer photography services. Please visit my photography portfolio page to get an idea of what I shoot and of my style.
My photography is generally tied to my writing, but I'm always open to photography specific commissions.
If you like to discuss a potential commission, please do get in touch.
