Oh, hey! I’m so glad you’re here.
You’ve probably guessed by now that I’m obsessed with mountains. And words. I (really) like words.
I have always wanted to write. I studied English Literature at Hull University. After getting my degree, I jumped straight into writing content for a local gaming website.
I spent three months playing video games… oh, and writing about them. I loved it, but there was a big and beautiful world outside my four walls, and I wanted to explore it.
So I spent the following year in Thailand. I lived in a wooden shack, taught English at schools and hotels, adopted a cat (which ran away), and booped a few elephants on the trunk.
The following year, I came home. My passion for gaming didn’t die, and I wrote for the two leading gaming websites in the UK: Kotaku and GamesRadar+.
I also trained as a personal assistant in Manchester. It was nice to be able to swear again (being out of a classroom).
But this is the important part: I learnt what marketing means to businesses of all shapes and sizes.
I managed blogs, wrote articles about mud, cake, and ISO accreditation, proofread projects, and (with permission) hijacked several social media accounts.
I then fell into a copywriting internship with the talented Helen Dibble. I learnt how writing for businesses is a nirvana of creativity, inspiring stories and a way to serve people.
In other words, it was totally my thing.
Since then, I have written content for business and lifestyle coaches, marketers, recruitment consultants, property managers, and accountants.
I showed them how words, with power equal to mountains, can be the catalyst for sensational things for their business.
And it all started with a conversation.
