I specialize in humor writing. I believe humor is a powerful tool in writing; it can be used to persuade the reader of the message you are trying to convey. I have attended comedy classes in New York City so as to strengthen my skills in writing and performing Stand-Up Comedy. I have also written many aphoristic poems; as I do believe this genre of poetry also persuades the reader of the message being conveyed.

One thing businesses absolutely must understand if they want to succeed as businesses: your customers don't have to read anything if the writing is bad. They can click away from your website, put your sales letter in the trash with the rest of the junk mail, they can delete your email. You have to make the reader WANT to keep reading. That's where I come in. I specialise in a style that's friendly, easy to read, and most importantly, fun. I want the reader to have a good time while they're reading. That way, they can properly pay attention to the important stuff, without having to stifle a yawn. I can help you to get inside the heads of your clients and customers and communicate directly with them. I can help you truly engage with your audience. I have been copywriting for more than 4 years, and I have plenty of experience up my sleeves. I've done everything from product descriptions to newsletters, from articles to brochures. I know how to get you the conversions you want and I have the history to back it up. Check out my portfolio if you want to see what I can do. I've got a broad range of skills, so hit me up! I'll be happy to work with you to get the results you want.
I'm all about telling stories. My academic background is in English, Economics and Psychology. And as a professionally published writer of fiction and poetry I believe I can help make your content better. Whether it's an assignment, book, website, article or blog, I can help with creating original work or editing what you already have.
Great copy writing is a balancing act. On the one side you have boundless imagination and infinite possibilities - the need to capture the attention of an audience, tell a great story and create emotional investment in the product. On the other side are the functional requirements of the project - the structure needed to hit selling points, understand the market and ensure that the message is clear, concise and on brief. Creative writing is my great passion. I have a background in writing for film and comics, which allowed me develop a range of tones, voices and how to combine them in order to tell the best "story". Working for a production company as a writer, video editor and producer, has given me the advertising experience needed to create copy on brief. I've seen video and print campaigns from many different angles, which was crucial in helping me understand what is required in every part of the chain. Many writers only have experience from that point of view, which can be limiting. I have a lot of web experience and am currently focusing on brand identity, strategic writing, and web content.
I was an advisor to the BBC in London for two years. I am now a freelance writer and editor for discerning (and usually delighted) clients, itching to unleash affecting prose, or massage others' to fluidity. My natural writing style is engaging (and educational if needs be), entertaining and memorably unusual. I employ my vivacious imagination, broad awareness of evocative vocabulary, and thoroughly objectionable sense of humour. In the case of non-fiction, I incorporate research credibly into the flow of the text. I've written published books (e-books and hard copy), magazine articles, music reviews, copy, medical articles and website content. I consider myself a highly capable and perceptive editor. I have years of experience meticulously tightening and colouring novels, hundreds of articles and essays, non-fiction books, two film scripts, an e-book by an established UK psychologist, a book by an award-winning photographer and an e-book serving as guidance for professional writers. I am diligent to the point of beneficial neurosis: I notice mistakes (or thoughtlessness) in typography, flow, punctuation, structure or word choice in published works. I'm also a registered paediatric and emergency nurse, with a particular interest in holistic therapies. After graduating with Kingston University's highest mark, I went on to be a health lecturer, disaster relief worker, and advisor to various UK and Sri Lankan health charities. I helped create pilot schemes for the National Health Service. Now as a professional writer and explorer, I have no 'normal job' to interfere with my writing commissions.

I currently reside in a dilapidated South-East Asian beach hut with a large spider and an internet connection. I enjoy eating, motorcycling and thaumatology.
I'm a comedy writer from New Jersey, with a background in journalism -- an observational humorist. I'm fluent in absurdism and adept at sketch comedy, satire and Twitter. My comedy training is diligent and my experience diverse. I've studied journalism and media studies at Rutgers University and sketch comedy writing at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater in New York. I've written (and punched up) stand-up material, one-liners and humor essays, beta-tested a parody news website, scripted animated series, copy-written greeting cards, and won a pun-off. I'm seeking new opportunities to craft the perfect punchline. Or whatever it is you need. I treat all senses of humor equally; except the bad ones.
