My experience runs from early years as a journalist in South East London to a lengthy spell in the advertising and marketing world in London and Sydney. This has included working for CBA, ANZ, QBE Insurance, Fuji Xerox, Diageo, Volvo, Microsoft and Jaguar plus a ton of smaller businesses that were much more fun and rewarding to help out. Which is why I am now dedicated to freelance advertising and content creation dealing direct with clients and agencies as well as creating my own work. Including three novels. I mention these not only to underline that I can create long compelling work from scratch but also to perhaps flog you a book! I am also flexible, reasonably quick and understand the value of a dollar as I now run my own dream small business, a vinyl record shop. So if you don’t want my words you could still buy some music.
This section includes a feature length article ‘so you’re feeling groovy – young punters’ guide to affordable record playing’.
I do this not just to further underscore the importance of the vinyl revival and show I can put together an engaging 3000 word how to guide – but because I now I find myself making a living in a world where writing is considered ‘content’ – pixel filler to feed a bloated internet gorging on billions of mindless words.
And you know what – despite all you may hear otherwise good writing still matters. Google seeks out and even prioritises ‘honesty of creation’ – good on you Google. So clients who want to make digital work better understand they need more than $15 a day SEO driven drivel from the Philippines.
Here’s some recent content on a range of topics and people plus a blog where you can pan or praise and learn more.
Will add more as mood and mind takes me and all are available for publication by mutual agreement – I make my living at this.
