About the Candidate
I am an independent media professional, based Chester, UK, with 20 years of experience of working as a jobbing writer for newspapers, magazines and online media.
I know what makes a good story, can always spot a new angle and understand how human interest is key to storytelling. My specialist area of writing are travel, tourism, family, education and men’s issues.
I deliver clean, accurate copy to deadline and always include original quotes from named expert sources. My first non-fiction book, Inside Fatherhood, was published in 2018.
You can hire me to write for your company or brand as a freelance journalist, or as a copywriter. I have previously worked on brochure and web content, and as a guest blogger, primarily for tourist boards and travel companies, such as Visit Wales and Marketing Cheshire.
As a media tutor, I teach modules at university level for undergraduate and postgraduate courses. My specialist area is feature and magazine journalism. I also run independent media-writing workshops for other organisations across Northwest England and North Wales.
You can also hire me as a freelance media trainer, helping your company through my experience of print journalism and handling difficult interviews.
