Although I’m a wearer of many hats, my first love is words. On the back of a Bachelor of Arts in Professional Writing & Linguistics, I have worked in the communication industry for more than 20 years. I freelanced as a copywriter, editor and journalist for many of those years before founding ethical brand agency, Active Voice. Its talented team of writers, communication strategists, designers and techs did some wonderful work creating values-led communication (including websites) for small businesses, NGOs, government departments and charities.
Since then, I’ve been hat juggling (to mix a metaphor). A Masters degree in Applied Social Science skilled me up to support people through difficult times and processes. It also taught me again and again, the often under-valued art of listening.
I’ve always kept up some freelance writing and editing – I wrote a weekly relationships column for four years, a chapter about time management for a business book and edited a bunch of psychology and business books.
I’m delighted to be part of Bello Square and to harness the power of well-chosen words to make our clients’ websites cut through and shine.
