I write things. That's what I do, mostly. How about you?

For me, it started with plays. Now, I also write TV scripts, songs, ads, concepts, TOV guidelines, content, copy, and speeches.

I actually started out training as an actor. I did it properly too, got a classical theatre training from a dead good drama school and everything (dahling). Then I found out I could be a writer, which I love, so I did that. And then, I realised I could have it all. So, now, I help people out by writing things for them. And I write and perform myself.

I also have a pretty much insatiable appetite for learning, about myself and about creativity. So, I lead others too. I train and coach them bring their projects to life.

Scroll through my portfolio. Drop me a note? I love getting notes.
