A quick look at me in not many words. You know, just in case you think I’m not real or a bit of software that can allegedly create super smart words.
Born in Hull.
Birthplace of William Wilberforce (leader of movement to abolish slavery), John Venn (philosopher and inventor of the Venn diagram) and Mick Ronson (super cool guitarist and a Spider from Mars). Oh, and home of Philip Larkin (poet and writer) for over 30 years.
See Venn diagram of me below.
Study English Lit and Creative Writing at UEA, Norwich.
Six hours of studies a week (good grief) and lots of reading (allegedly).
First proper job – sub-editor at BBC.
Paid to write words. Who’d have thought it?
Senior copywriter at Macmillan Cancer Support.
Writing and doing some good. A bit of a dream job, really.
Set up my own copywriting business.
Variety is the spice of life, unlike chilli powder, which you just couldn’t have every day.
Eating a falafel while writing kick-ass copy.
Actually, that’s a lie. I can’t do both of those things at the same time.
Hopefully doing some great work for you.
Insert your project here, I guess. Yes, do that, please.
