These people and companies all hire me to write about things I love, such as food and yoga, which is nice! My copywriting portfolio also includes examples of the other types of writing I do, such as scriptwriting, blogs and brochures. For a full run-down of the types of writing I can do for you, please see the Services page.
Lucky’s Surf School
Making this website for my friend’s surf school in Weligama, Sri Lanka, was an absolute joy – not least because I did it in between surf sessions on the very beach where his school is! It’s a simple website, made using WordPress, which means it’s easy to maintain.
Like most people, I love food, which is why it’s such a pleasure to write articles for the Dr Foodle website. You’ll see more and more of my articles added to this site over time.
As a child, I was always up at the crack of dawn, watching cartoons on a weekend, which is why it’s such a privilege to write scripts for this YouTube channel – where kids can now get their animation fix at any time of the day!!
Stables Yoga Studio
As the person behind The Stables’ Facebook page and Twitter account, my mission is to continue to increase brand awareness, add ‘user value’ to the Stables’ social media output and attract new followers, website traffic and studio clients.
“Thought you should know we are incredibly busy this year, all classes rammed full. It’s wonderful. On Saturday so many people turned up for class we had to lay on an impromptu extra class in the lower studio! Long may it last… Thanks for your efforts” – Sophie Carr, co-owner, Stables Yoga Centre

YogaBuzz (2012 – 14)
My own yoga teaching business, based in York – a city awash with yoga teachers!

BBC (2003 – 2014)

Two years were also spent creating content for the BBC website.
