About Me

Image by Mikaela Jade.

As a writer with over 10 years' professional experience, I can help you convey your business' message to your audience in a way that is simple and digestible, while being informative and engaging.

I began my career as a journalist, first as a freelance writer for local magazines while studying for my degree in English, then, after graduating with honours, I became a full-time editorial assistant at a luxury lifestyle magazine, before progressing to content writer, then deputy editor at a national hair and beauty title.

Following this, I decided to take the path to become a full-time freelance writer. Since 2017, I have worked with independent businesses, agencies and influencers to create content that captivates their audiences.

Why employ me and not ChatGPT?

I believe we have a moral obligation to keep a human element to business. Your audience is human, so what better way to connect with them than with a human writer? I can write (good) humour; I can make obscure references to nineties pop culture; I can talk about an experience or product in a way that elicits a visceral response from the reader, allowing them to connect with your brand in a way that can't yet be facilitated by AI.

I'm also a brand geek. This means that, when we work together, I become a fan of your brand. From the ins and outs of your audience, tone, style, genre, to graphic elements such as the use of imagery, typography and colour palette, I commit to understanding your branding just as well as you do. This helps me tailor my writing style to fit your business.


I have worked with a number of different content management systems in a range of formats. The CMSs I have experience with include Wordpress, Blogger, Webflow and Squarespace. I also have experience with Substack, Mailchimp, Shopify, Podio, Trello, Later, and a range of other platforms. I can also learn new software quickly, and adapt to your business' needs.

I have experience writing B2C as well as B2B, in the sectors of: fashion, beauty, lifestyle, travel, pet care, horticulture, psychology, gynaecology, rheumatology, recruitment and human resources.

I hope we can work together!

Maple Chocolate Rice Pudding | Naughty But Rice

This weekend, Naughty But Rice* invited me to try out some of their handy pots of rice pudding in the delicious flavours of creamy Salted Caramel, refreshing Coconut & Raspberry and tangy Chocolate Orange. I'd never tried these before, but after a few scoops I knew that these little pots would soon become a lunchbox regular.

I prefer to heat mine up in the microwave, which only takes a minute (literally); however, you can enjoy these cold if you prefer - perfect for coolbox picnics!

The brand also challenged me to create my own rice pudding flavour. 

Challenge accepted.

I have a huge sweet-tooth, so I wanted to create something that would provide the ultimate sweet-tooth-satisfaction. I combined maple syrup, plain chocolate, cinnamon and just a hint of nutmeg to produce a flavour that would take me back to my childhood when my mum had a huge pot of rice pudding slow-cooking on the stove for a good two hours, making me salivate until I could finally tuck in after dinner.

I used whole chunks of chocolate in this dessert, to give that nice, rich, surprise burst of flavour when you pop a spoonful into your mouth. Here's my recipe:


- 100g pudding rice
- 50g sugar
- 700ml semi-skimmed milk
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 75g plain chocolate


1. Preheat the over to 150C/fan 130C/gas mark 2.

2. Wash the rice and drain.

3. Butter an 850ml baking dish. Tip in the rice and sugar and stir in the milk, maple syrup, nutmeg and cinnamon.

4. Place chunks of the plain chocolate randomly throughout the dish.

5. Cook for 2 hours or until the pudding wobbles ever so slightly when shaken.
