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.

Copywriter

Wow. Over 30 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.
