Looking for a content editor or writer? I’ve been a journalist, published author and editor of monthly magazines for over 20 years. No matter what subject I’m covering, I do my best to make every sentence count.

Looking for a content editor or writer? I’ve been a journalist, published author and editor of monthly magazines for over 20 years. No matter what subject I’m covering, I do my best to make every sentence count.
Today I enjoy working with all kinds of businesses, as well as editing and writing for publications. Previously, I was the full-time editor of market-leading publications, including South West Business Insider and the popular science magazines BBC Focus and BBC Sky at Night. I have a degree in physics and a particular interest in innovative technologies and transformative ideas.
I love the challenge of making complex subjects accessible. Whether it’s sustainability, succession planning, statistical forecasting or space debris, I always ask myself the same question. What does the reader want to know? The answer is just the first step towards content with clarity, which is essential if you want to cut through the noise. Scroll down to find out how I can help.
