About me

Words. Powerful in the right hands. Dangerous, when not. Make you buy things you never knew you needed. Or turn you off something you always did. For me, it’s all about words. Whether crafting them on your behalf, or teaching you to do it yourself. Over 30 years as an international copywriter, trainer and ideas generator, and I still get excited by the power of language. I’ve learned from the best: the tips, skills and techniques. Let me share them with you, or engage them on your behalf.

Some of my clients have come from an initial ‘help!’ phone call. Happy to. Just give me a little advance warning.


Wow. Over 35 years as a copywriter. I started in London in mainstream (I still write the odd TV commercial). Embraced direct in the early 90s. Wrote some of Australia’s first websites. Got into social, early. Still writing. Still cracking ideas. Still excited by what I do.

Never get stuck for words or ideas, again. An inspiring, practical day that explores the foundations of idea generation, copywriting and digital. Described (several times) as ‘more useful than an entire Uni degree’.


Writing for digital mediums shares the foundations of copy; but differs in vital ways. Learn to write the way a reader reads off a screen, essential email tips, what works in social, content, banners and more.
