Service Description

I am a committed and passionate writer, researcher and editor. You can, therefore, rest assured that I only bid for, or take on, work that intrigues or inspires me in some way.

Clients that I have previously worked for, and continue to work for in some instances, include: The World Bank, The Urban Land Institute, Virgin Media, Expedia, Trailfinders, Greg Clark (world renowned expert on city and regional economic development), Sky Sports Online, Ad-Rank Media, Startupsuccess.co.uk, Setanta Sports online, Global Consulting firm Gensler, SportsPro Media, Invest Thames Gateway, Strensa.com, Cavemen Media, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the UK Government and MIPIM.

In addition to writing, I am extremely competent in the sphere of social media. Having run a blog of my own, Rugby Spectator, which drew on my experience as a former professional rugby player, for one year, I have experience building online brands on a tight budget. The site itself peaked in terms of visitor numbers during the 2011 Rugby World Cup, where it was attracting in excess of 30,000 unique visitors per month, with almost no marketing budget. During this period, I also wrote for Sky Sports and Setanta Sports online (see portfolio for examples of my work), as well as reviewing two rugby video games, with a quote from one of my articles being used in one of the games’ print ad campaign (see portfolio). Although I no longer run the site, due to time constraints, I continue...
