Objective

My objective is to do the work I love on a daily basis; to make a difference to personal and professional organizations by checking copy for clarity, accuracy and utility and producing work with flair and creativity.

Summary

As a highly motivated and detail orientated graduate with a first-class degree, I have a proven track record ofthe successful production of multimedia social content across a range of published and interactive platforms. Although analysis of the written word constitutes a large part of my professional life, my passion for writing extends well beyond the workplace and is expressed through the creative work that I do in my spare time and I am confidentthat I can deliver immediate value to any organisation. Whilst many writers rely heavily on technical or "hard" skills, to my mind the attributes that make a truly exceptional copywriter often derive from their application of so-called "soft" skills. In addition to my stronganalytical skills, ear for language and sound knowledge of grammar, it is my tact, diplomacy and patiencethat have proved the most beneficial in a professional context, helping me to build excellent workingrelationships. My communication skills and balance of respect for the author's intent combined with an understanding of the reader's needs singles my work out as outstanding. My work recognises and embraces the inevitability of ambiguity and acknowledges the grace of the fine point. I have an almost intuitive grasp of the English language and am always seeking to improve my skillset and my learning however I can, striving to be productive, progressive and positive. With a reputation for groundedness, empathy and quick-wit I am a truly unique creative. Currently looking for extra freelance projects around my existing commitments. Please get in touch if you are outsourcing copywriting work and are in need of quick and reliable content.
