Hello and welcome to my writing blog, and resume. I have just come back from a brief stint teaching English in Beijing, China. What I learned from that was to stick to what you love the most and allow everything else to resonate from that. So I am back to having writing at the core of what I do. Business writing, creative writing and eventually writing as a form of therapy.
I love to write. I write short stories, I write poetry, I write speeches, and I even like to write technical white papers, so I must love this stuff. I have only been writing full time for three years as I have spent the last ten years working in I.T. doing desktop and network support during the day, while dreaming of being a writer at night.
Last year I finished a BA Hon’s in Creative and Professional Writing at Bangor University in Wales.
As a copywriter I have been attending some excellent copywriting, and communication courses, and topped up my knowledge by reading as much as I can on marketing and copywriting. I must admit I think I am born to do this. So far I have written sales letters, white papers, brochures, newsletters, a course on project management, and numerous technical articles which can all be viewed on this page.
I managed to grab my first large corporate client Dolby, although that probably had to do with the fact that I used to do their I.T. Support. I am preparing technical disclosures for uploading on the internet. Please have a look.
While I harbour ambitions to become an author I enjoy all forms of writing. Whether it be a political speech, or a loved one’s eulogy, a white paper on managed services, or a soft furnishing companies sales letter. They all contain a story, and need a writer with great heart and imagination to write them.
