I make content better

I’m a freelance writer, editor and publishing manager, with 20 years’ experience in publishing and journalism. I’ve covered lots of subjects in that time, but have a talent for writing lively, useful content for young people, especially on money or tough topics.

I’d particularly like to work with charities, social organisations, and anyone else who wants to change the world for the better! Take a look around the site to find out more about me, or get in touch below if you’d like to work together.

What I do

I’m a former editor of The Push Guides (print/web student series), write The Money Charity’s Student Moneymanual every year, provide digital support and create websites for Action for Children, and am a writer/editor & press officer at Save the Student.

I’m also a member of the Board of Trustees at Carlisle Eden Mind: please visit the site; they do brilliant things to support mental health needs in Cumbria.
