Service Description

I have worked with companies, advertising agencies, media outlets and private individuals in Ireland and the UK as an employee and all over the world on a freelance basis. Along the way I have received many awards for work in both Ireland and further afield.

I started my most recent stint as a freelancer in early 2007 and have already completed campaigns for Eircom, the Irish Film Board, Sage Accounting Systems, Jameson, Cork Dry Gin and the Ingersoll-Rand group, as well as projects for smaller independent companies and charities.

I have huge experience of websites and online content. I currently work as a journalist at Your Wellness magazine and valuewalk.com. My areas of expertise are current affairs, technology, business, health, music and the environment. Get in touch for a relevant example for your needs.

I pride myself on providing a reliable, fast turnaround, 'express' service for clients with tight deadlines at very competitive rates. Nothing is plagiarised or sub-contracted.

I specialise in providing an express service for copy and concepts for all advertising including DM, press, radio, TV, point-of-sale and Internet content such as PR, articles and websites. Additionally I have years' of experience in developing corporate material such as brochures as well as sales letters, DR boxes and corporate web sites.
