Who am I?
I’m a freelance copywriter and communications strategist, based in Brighton, UK. I’ve lived in London, Birmingham and Berkeley and now love living by the sea, ably supported by my husband and a very whiney cat called Pukey.
I’ve got a BA in American Studies from the University of Birmingham (UK) with part of my degree completed at UC Berkeley (USA); as well as an MPhil in History, Film and TV.
I strongly believe in the benefits of networking and working co-operatively; I’m still looking for my ideal co-working space and I’m a member of the Brighton and Hove Chamber of Commerce; Wired Sussex and appear in the Brighton and Hove Green Pages.
I’ve been delivering straightforward communications and marketing strategies for over ten years, in the public and private sectors.
I’ve written targeted websites and brochures for young people; developed communications strategies for working with people with learning disabilities; unravelled ‘techie speak’ so that anyone can understand how new IT systems work; edited reports long and short; coordinated book club brochures; helped people cut through the drivel and communicate better.
I’m committed to providing an ethical and personable service, with reasonable rates and a fast turnaround for projects.

What’s all this ‘comms with a conscience’?
- I work with ethical and green businesses, charities and CICs, local businesses and artists/craftmakers/alternative therapists;
- Ethical banking;
- I’m aiming to be as paperless as possible;
- Green webhosting;
- I don’t work with companies that ‘greenwash’ or don’t back up their Corporate Social Responsibility claims with visible actions;
- I do my best to start each day with a smile and, no matter how small, aim to make a difference in the world.
