A BIT ABOUT ME
From teacher to wordsmith
I travelled the world before settling in Austria. There, with my PGCE, I landed a senior lecturer position at the University of Salzburg.
I taught advanced writing skills and grammar to teacher trainers and undergrads, but in those five years, I learnt more about the English language than I had in the previous two decades.
The uni years also saw my portfolio of clients start to grow and my juggling skills develop.
Since 2013, with a master’s in professional writing from Falmouth University under my belt, there's been no looking back.
Now living in Bristol and a proofreader, editor and writer full time, I'm very much in my happy place. I write, as a ghost, for several big names as well as many startups, small businesses and individuals.
