Service Description

Since graduating (2:1 BA(hons) Social Studies (Philosophy &Political Ethics), I have lived a varied and interesting life amongst (and actively participating in) alternative communities (New Age Traveller, Punk, European underground techno), as well as travelling extensively around Europe, Turkey and the Far East). Throughout this time, in addition to teaching English when abroad (I am a native UK English speaker), and being actively involved with event origination and promotion (including the Dragon Festival in Spain and CzechTek in the Czech Republic), I have kept extensive written journals of my travels and adventures.

I am very computer IT literate and have run both a small web design company and a computer repair tuition service. I recently settled down in Plymouth (with a beautiful NQT Teacher) and am nearing completion of a two year course in Sound Engineering. I have always been praised for my talents as an author, and I now wish to pursue a career as a freelance writer in tandem with that of a sound engineer.

I believe that my academic background, which encompasses both the Arts and technical skills and abilities, combined with the wealth of life experience that I have had, allows me to write in a style that combines confidence, precision and academic rigour with a good dash of flair.
