Who I Am
I am a creative and talented corporate and digital communications professional who has experience writing for the real estate, travel, retail, education, health, lifestyle and finance niches.
My writing career started in the commercial real estate sector, where I produced a range of print media copy like brochures, formal market research reports, full page advertisements for industry magazines, proposals.
While living abroad, I expanded my range and moved into travel writing for digital channels, and then into writing sales copy, articles, lead magnets, and email responders for businesses.
I have worked in house with a major international company, with agencies, and as a self-employed freelancer working directly with clients. I have written for a range of audiences in the Australian, American and European markets, ranging from high net worth property investors to online shoppers and budget travelers.
I have hands on experience liasing with key stakeholders, generating ideas, and helping clients to work out a strategy and brand voice.
I can write excellent sales material, however, my strength is my ability to take complex ideas and turn them into plain English text that is suitable for the intended audience.

Knowledge & Expertise
After working in the corporate sector for three years, I developed strong corporate writing skills including preparing presentations, market briefs, technical reports, and proposals. I'm very proficient in interpreting complex financial information, and translating it into plain English text suitable for a target audience, and explaining graphs and tables, and economic information.
Having trained as a classical direct mail copywriter, I'm able to craft persuasive copy for landing pages, mail pieces, brochures, and autoresponders that turn leads into hungry buyers. My skills include crafting winning headlines, leads, and closers, as well as integrating emotive language that creates a strong hook.
As a seasoned traveller with an eye for the quirky, and a love of destinations off the beaten track, I love sharing my travel experiences with others in a way that is personal, humorous, and showcases a destination's most attractive features. My travel writing includes pieces for Hipmunk, Intercontinental Hotels Group, and International Living magazine
