I’ve been writing professionally since before Steve Jobs unveiled the first iPhone in 2007. I have a wealth of writing experience in B2B, B2C, the UFC and yes I know my ABCs.

My handwriting may resemble a toddler’s but my copywriting is first class. Brands I’ve worked with include Vodafone, Air New Zealand, Globalization Partners, Toyota, CampINN, Sportskeeda, Uber, Kia, Moldova Tourism, and Cigna Insurance.

I’m a Kiwi currently living in Bogota, Colombia with my wife, where I’m attempting to improve my Spanish (it’s a work in progress, gracias.) Over my copywriting career, I have produced radio ads, case studies, eBooks, blogs, sports articles, emails, social media content, video scripts, radio play, webinars, and more.

I never miss deadlines and I believe that work should be fun. So let’s talk and create something beautiful that we’re proud of and most importantly your audience/customers/clients will love too.
