Passionate about writing ever since I was old enough to hold a pen, I have enjoyed a varied and exciting career, working as a music journalist, web designer and digital marketer before finally settling into my dream job as a full-time freelance writer.
By day, I work with small and medium sized businesses, empowering them to communicate effectively with their audiences through captivating online content. I do this predominantly through two small businesses:
Outsourced Copywriting, a white label copywriting service for marketing and digital design companies , and my own digital marketing business, OneCo Creative, where I also provide web design, social media and content marketing services.
After three successful years of providing copywriting services, I’m eager to return to music journalism, and -as of late 2016- am currently seeking new opportunities in this area.
When I’m not creating awesome content as part of my day job, I keep on writing for the sheer enjoyment of it. My ultimate goal is to eventually publish a novel. I’m currently seeking representation for a science fiction horror novel I wrote called Asylonia, whilst simultaneously working on a new horror story about fate, faith, and immortality.
I also enjoy writing and performing spoken-word poetry. You can listen to some rough demos of my poems on my Soundcloud page.
Besides writing, music has forever been my other lifelong passion. I enjoy playing guitar, harmonica, and bass guitar, though you’ll never catch me claiming to be much good at any of them.
What I am good at is concert promotion. From 2007-2011, I played a key roll in the popular Haigh Fest, an annual music festival attracting crowds of 8,000+ to Haigh Hall in Wigan each summer. There, I was responsible for online marketing and promotion, helping to create the artistic program and MC’ing the event.
Beyond that, I’ve promoted, co-promoted, hosted, and played at countless gigs both at home in North West England and abroad.
Outside of my work, one of my proudest moments was completing the London Marathon in 2012. Following knee surgery in 2014, I no longer run, but instead enjoy mountain biking, road cycling, and Tai Chi.
I’m also passionate about art, photography, creativity, spirituality, personal development, and exploring the sheer vastness of the universe.
