I'm a creative copywriter and freelance writer from Sydney. I work with agencies near and far, as well as a handful of regular clients, to deliver smart, strategic thinking, creative ideas and compelling writing. Or something like that. I also write the odd essay and piece of criticism for titles near and far. And I run a bit. BA Sydney, M.Litt St Andrews.

Words matter. Good writing stops people in their tracks and makes them buy whatever it is you're selling1. At worst, it lets them know what you're on about. Bad writing? Not so much. Ideas can come from anywhere, but some are better than others. Curiosity, not contempt. People are smarter than some people think. Citizen journalism sounds about as dumb as citizen dentistry. Life's too short for dull.
