I’m an experienced journalist with some 20-odd years behind me who has naturally become an expert content strategist and planner. Along the way I’ve been editor of five different lifestyle magazines, a columnist and a freelance writer. I have two books in print and I teach. I’m a fully fledged user of a wide range of social networking platforms and can write content for websites, design sites in Wordpress, and edit using InDesign and InCopy. I’m also great at writing good content and copy on a wide range of all lifestyle and business subjects. Dynamic copy and content are second nature to me.
I am also a part time university lecturer and have written academic courses, at degree level, and for online eLearning and distance courses.
For the past ten years I’ve run my own businesses – with all the business development, HR, admin, budgetry, sales, marketing and PR aspects that go with that, as well as the production of hundreds of international events and the management of a dedicated in-house team.
