Freelance copywriter, proofreader and voice actor
I’m a London-based writer, editor and voice actor with a finger in many pies.
By day, I write copy for everyone from toy company Jellycat to agencies to speechwriters in Germany. As a voiceover, I currently record the Mosaic Science podcast for the Wellcome Trust and a range of animations for Politics.co.uk, for clients such as YMCA, the Foundation for Alcohol Research and the British Council.
Since 2009, I have also co-run Sidekick Books, an award-winning collaborative poetry publisher seeking to take poetry beyond a narrow audience in a Trojan horse of film, video games and animals. Think poetry doesn’t speak to your interests? We’re keen to prove you wrong.
My own poetry has been published by Happenstance and Salt, translated into Russian and Spanish and thrown out of a helicopter over the South Bank. I’ve completed commissions on the Simpsons, London, Godzilla – you name it. Give me a theme and I’ll give you a poem.
I’m obsessed with short stories, particularly those by Miranda July, Lorrie Moore, Shirley Jackson and Mary Gaitskill.
Finally, I volunteer with Ministry of Stories, Talking News Islington and of course 26, as a mentor, voiceover and writer/editor, respectively. Thoroughly recommended.
