Welcome. I'm a published author, writer, editor, and translator with nearly 15 years experience in typing up both the fanciful and the concise.
I've worked as a copywriter, a content editor, and a document controller - but my approach differs that of your average typist. I offer traditional, investigative content tailored to your audience.
About me: The first story I remember ever writing was about a boy falling out of a hammock. It was two lines long, and I must have been about seven years old. It was enticing in the sort of way the toilet exhibit at the Tate Modern is enticing… All in all the dazzling highlight of my early literary career (hopefully less so now), and the start of a sincere passion.
At 28-years-old I have lived in Germany, Taiwan, Saudi Arabia, England, Canada, Austria, and now Scotland (where I intend to stay. Our national animal is a unicorn, come on!)
Courtesy of that upbringing, I have had the pleasure of interviewing the most diverse set of people - from artists to politicians - while my fictional stories were inspired by all those different cultures, sights, and smells.
I love to learn about different types of writing to convey all of these experiences, and continue to take courses to expand my skills.
During the week you'll find me working as a copywriter and editor for a variety of valued clients. My approach is investigative: I always strive to understand the background of a project, and tailor the tone and style of my writing to your audience.
In my spare time I work on my YA fantasy series, The Chronicle of Legends, as well as several smaller creative projects.
