firstly, hats off to my dad
…for giving his old laptop when I was 10. Back in the age before the internet (yes… dial-up baby over here!) all I had was Word and my own vividly colourful imagination.
Over the next few years I birthed a biblical length story about a girl called Ingrid and cultivated an intense love of writing.
At university I dived into… literal…heaven (see what I did there?). I sporadically added to a blog I’d started as a teenager and began to craft my own unique combination of digital brevity and literary flair.
Digital marketing hit the stratosphere as I stepped off the graduation podium – but it didn’t take long for the shine to tarnish.

These days, life looks a little (lot) different. I spend every single day answering my true calling – writing for a diverse and creative client base, speaking to solo entrepreneurs, CEOs and large companies all over the world. From my office in beautiful Hampshire, I connect you with your ideal client.
When I’m not filling my quill, you’ll find me hanging out with my partner – Josh (another bad-ass entrepreneur), running, endurance training and recording The Mighty Foof podcast.
