(Actually, I live on a houseboat...)

I'm a freelance copywriter. And if I'm known for anything, it's for making the complex simple. 
 

I work directly for clients such as Orange, reMarkable

(a paper tablet launched by Finnish entrepreneurs) and John Lewis, and on client and personal projects for design and branding consultancies including Creamer & Sundt, The BrandGym and Huddle.

I'm relishing the wonderful variety of writing I'm doing with Orangebox (the contemporary office furniture company); from editing books to writing web copy, people profiles, case studies, new business proposals, posters and ads. And in the wake of Covid-19 I've been finding writing about the specific workplace challenges of lockdown for them (see NEW WORK) particularly illuminating and rewarding.

When you work with someone and they 'get it', it's a joy. You relax, step back and allow things to emerge. You end up not only getting the job done, you get more than you bargained for. You get all this working with Chris. She maintains a great balance of focus, passion and playfulness. Chris can be forensic one minute and take the broad view the next. Sheer bliss!
