Having worked in the music industry for a number of years, then in sporting goods, I found myself in a writing position as editor of an entertainment news site. This progressed to a features and social content writing position at a major news website where I honed my craft as a writer.

Somewhere along this little adventure, I also dabbled in everything from design and copywriting, to web design and even some sound editing, creating ads and jingles for a community radio station. These days I also dabble in photography, and my portfolio is steadily growing.
