Below you can learn a little more about my background, skills and experience:

Writing and editing experience

I have a well-developed and engaging writing style, honed through numerous years’ experience producing content and copy for a wide range of purposes and audiences, both in my roles as an employee and in a self-employed capacity.

 

Examples of projects I’ve completed in the recent past include:

Digital skills

  • I’m passionate about the online world and always striving to learn about the latest tools and technologies.
  • Fully conversant with Microsoft Office, WordPress, Photoshop, and numerous popular blogging and online tools. (See “tools” section above for a full list).
  • Well-versed with social media, online marketing practices, SEO, and basic knowledge of HTML.
  • Highly accustomed to creating content for a digital audience. I’ve been running my own sites on the web since 2011. I self-host and maintain a professional website alongside several sites on niche topics. I also run a personal blog, where I post regularly on travel, personal development, nutrition, and more.

Education and employment

  • I have two degrees from two top universities in the UK: An MSc in International Development (Distinction) from the University of London and a BA Hons in Geography and French (First Class) from Durham University
  • I worked for a while as a research assistant for a leading European consultancy company. I was tasked with the preparation and write-up of research materials, literature reviews, reports and guides for a wide range of public sector and non-profit clients.
  • I have lived and worked in Paris as an administrative assistant for a well-known property consultancy. My role involved proof-reading, conducting translations, writing reports, and carrying out a range of administrative duties.
  • I’ve spent 5 months working as an English teacher in Madagascar.
  • I spent several months volunteering for a development and conservation NGO in Madagascar.
  • I’ve undertaken research projects involving primary fieldwork in Ethiopia, Thailand and the Philippines.

Research skills

I am a meticulous researcher who enjoys sourcing and curating knowledge across a broad range of subjects, as well as delving deep to uncover detailed understanding about a topic.

 

My research skills have been honed through completing numerous academic assignments (including two dissertations) during 5 years of higher education, as well as in my role as a research assistant for a leading European consultancy. Currently, I put my research skills to use on a daily basis, when I’m writing for clients or pursuing personal projects ranging from blogging to eBook creation.

 

In particular, I am skilled at:

 

  • Sifting through and condensing large amounts of information into concise and easily digestible forms, enabling me to present complex topics in an appealing way.
  • Compiling reputable, original and shareable links, case studies and examples.
  • Verifying and triangulating information through cross-checking multiple sources.

Areas of expertise

I mainly provide content and copy for businesses in the following industries:

 

  • Travel and adventure
  • The outdoors
  • Active lifestyle & adventure sports
  • Health and wellness
  • Food and nutrition

My other areas of interest and expertise include:

 

  • Personal development, positive psychology and practical philosophy
  • Personality psychology
  • Volunteering and living abroad
  • International development
  • Self-employment, location independence and lifestyle design
  • Writing and blogging
  • Education
  • Parenting

 

Whilst these are my main areas of focus, I’m insatiably curious and a great lover of learning. I’m more than willing to write on just about any topic. Just contact me to discuss your requirements.

Personal & professional attributes

  • I’m a highly visual person with a passion for web design, photography and a good eye for aesthetics. I’m skilled at enhancing written content through incorporating images, videos, infographics and other media, as well as ensuring I deliver top-notch formatting and presentation every time.
  • My native language is English. I also have an advanced level of written and spoken French.
  • I’m very conscientious, with a great work ethic, strong attention to detail and superb organisational skills. I have a proven ability to balance multiple projects, adhere strictly to all guidelines and meet deadlines with precision.
