I'm a Scottish-based freelance news and features journalist working for daily and regional newspapers, websites and magazines.
I am currently a regular contributor to The Herald, producing news features with a particular Scottish focus across a broad range of topics - from crime to soft features, health, fun, human interest, comment, politics and business.
I'm highly experienced with a strong reputation as an accurate and fast writer - I was shortlisted Scottish Feature of the Year 2014 - and am a former news and features editor for one of Scotland's leading regional evening newspapers.
I also produce business-related features for The Scotsman and sponsored content for Johnston Press titles. I also produce business-related features for Skip Hire Magazine, the UK journal for the waste industry.
As a freelance copywriter, I've produced copy and content for a variety of brands, including Sainsbury's Bank, Scottish Gas, ACCA, Scottish Government, GoCompare, Virgin Trains, Flybe, TravelSupermarket, London City Airport and dozens of others.
I have also worked closely with SP Energy Networks, and provided copywriting services for OFGEM documents and internal communications.
Quality news and features for daily and regional newspapers - particular focus on Scotland. Regular freelance contributor to The Herald. Areas of particular specialism include health, human interest, transport technology, environmental issues, Fintech, banking, waste management, Scottish news and features, business, entertainment and parenting.
