Work with me
Writing, copywriting and photo styling
With over 15 years experience in writing content for blogs and websites, bulletins and guides, copywriting for retail branding campaigns and supermarket packaging and with over 5 years experience in photography and photo styling, I have a lot of knowledge and passion to share across a range of industries. I have written and photographed for universities, the civil service, corporate law, NHS, retail, small businesses, lifestyle websites and creative industries. Some of these clients have included De Agostini Publishers, The Kettle Shed, Bags of Love, & Uncommon Gifts. I have also had permanent roles at Debevoise & Plimpton LLP, the Department for Communities and Local Government and in the NHS. I currently write and photograph for This Is Your Kingdom and I am a copywriter for Judy Andrews' design and branding agency.
I have collaborated and worked with a range of people in the creative industry, from graphic designers and web editors to bloggers and creatives, magazine editors and small businesses. Combined with over 5 years experience of setting up and running my own creative brand and business, I am passionate about working with fellow creatives whether in a collaborative sense, as part of a team, leading a project or inspiring others creatively. My current project, ColourMyEveryDay, is an extremely popular Instagram challenge that encourages people to explore and discover colour all around them. Having running for the third time in January/February 2018, this interactive and much talked about creative experience has grown, attracting Instagram users from across the world and has even been featured in the top 15 hashtags to live your life in colour by Mollie Makes.
Event planning and conferences
In previous roles, I have created and managed marketing events across departments and run large scale conferences; from planning the structure of the event to ordering supplies, producing marketing material, advertising across social media, managing bookings single-handedly, booking speakers, meeting and greeting attendees and ensuring the events run smoothly. Recently, I have worked as a team leader for the Etsy Somerset group, helping set it up as a group and creating meet-up topics, proof-reading handouts, being on-hand to answer any questions in the Facebook group, ensuring the conversation flows at meet-ups and running a fun Photowalk for the team.
I get very excited when I'm presented with a new project, my brain immediately goes to work on how to make it happen. With a background working in highly pressured, time limited, corporate environments, budget restricted public sectors and highly competitive creative industries, I am known for working well under pressure and in an extremely professional, approachable and confidential manner, completing projects on time and to the brief required. I will happily take on any size project, working independently or as part of a team and always with a positive can-do attitude. If you would like to hire me for writing, copywriting, photography, photo styling, a creative project or helping run an event, please do get in touch. I look forward to hearing from you!
