Overview

I'm an award-winning writer, editor and creative director with over 10 years’ experience penning articles, ads, scripts, books and branded content for clients around the world.

I love the sight of a blank page and have helped the likes of Visit England, Martini, The National Union of Teachers and Blohm+Voss Superyachts to create unique content that grabs eyeballs and starts conversations.

I've also launched a number of my own original titles, including the award-winning magazine OFF LIFE, the hardback coffee table book YELLOW, an animated TV series called MEAT and upcoming theatre production TOWN HALL.

Editor | Creative Director

Yellow (print and digital book)
April, 2014 – January, 2016 (almost 2 years)

Yellow was an exciting digital and book project that saw 52 of the world's most exciting artists illustrate 52 an entire year of news stories. The concept was to investigate what artists can bring to news coverage beyond traditional print and TV journalism. Beginning as a weekly digital series in late 2014, Yellow was eventually collected and published as a beautiful luxury book in December 2015 – taking over £25k in sales on Kickstarter and orders from some the UK's most desirable stockists.

Responsibilities include:

- Devising the original concept and structuring how to run the series
- Planning content, editorial strategy and identity for both the digital series and print title
- Commissioning all artists, writers and designers
- Print managing the book
