After studying English literature and European languages at university, I spent a few years working in marketing and communications, working on big-budget ad campaigns and churning out snappy web copy and eDMs.
I then made a foray into book publishing, most recently working as an editor at Te Papa Press. There I honed my editorial nous working on everything from glossy, weighty art catalogues to dense scientific journals.
Since 2011 I've been a freelance writer and editor for a satisfying mix of renowned national brands like Z and Fly Buys, boutique local companies such as Peoples Coffee and Enjoy Public Art Gallery, and government departments including The Treasury and NZTA.
What I can do for you
Whatever the project, I can whip your words into shape.
I'm best known for concise and engaging copy with a voice that perfectly fits your brand.
I like to sink my teeth into these kinds of jobs:
Writing online marketing campaigns, annual reports and communications collateral
Copyediting books, articles and working papers
Proofreading websites, brochures and catalogues
Writing FAQs and other Help Centre copy
Proofreading eDMs, tweets and other social media campaigns before they go out
How we work together
I can seamlessly join your in-house team when your company has deadlines to meet and is lacking in resource, or I can be the fresh pair of eyes that ensures your text is error-free and the best it can be.
Once you've briefed me on a project, together we'll work out the best way to structure it – for writing and editing I normally charge by the hour and invoice once the job's finished.
For bigger projects we can negotiate a flat fee, meaning no budgetary surprises at the end. Or you can send through regular snippets of work for a quick once-over, and I'll add up the minutes and invoice you at the end of each month.
