Be yourself, everyone else is already taken.

Oscar Wilde

I remember it was about 1999.

I was working as a waitress in a cocktail bar.

That’s a lie.

I was working in a London agency as a project manager of sorts.

Heads started turning when I began securing meetings and new business from the likes of BBC Radio 2, Guinness, Hamleys and the Graham Norton Show, just from writing persuasive emails.

I didn’t know at the time that there was such a thing as copywriting. I didn’t realise that’s what I was doing. I just kept on writing. And we kept getting a foot in the door of some nice clients.

And I’m still writing today.

Copy for websites, blogs and articles. And, as I have a musical background, plenty of songs too.

I’m based near Buckingham, between Oxford and Milton Keynes – about an hour out of London.

I live here with my patient wife, football-mad young son and several four-legged critters.
