Overview

As a professional football/soccer writer from the UK, I have worked with some of the biggest players in the modern game. I am your journalist, ghostwriter, transcriber, blogger and editor, all rolled into one.

I write high quality, search engine friendly and engaging content and I pride myself on thorough research and execution. I specialize in writing about sport and travel but thrive on new subjects - give me the theme and I'll deliver the words.

I have a BA in Creative Writing and Film Studies and an NCTJ Diploma in Newspaper Journalism...

Service Description

I believe that writers must be passionate about their subject if they are truly going to do a good job. Football/soccer has always been a huge part of my life and I am lucky enough to have had a lot of experience working as a football journalist.

I have ghostwritten blogs and articles for 50 professional players in the United Kingdom, managed their personal websites and syndicated content from my interviews around the world.

I have been a match reporter for my local newspaper, written scripts for the BBC, attended and reported from high-profile press conferences, generated football betting predictions, interviewed managers and agents, met the stars of the game, translated and edited the work of others and much more...

My work has appeared on UEFA.com, the BBC London website, The Observer newspaper, The Singapore New Paper, The Irish Examiner, FourFourTwo, London's FreeSport Magazine, Nuts, The Locker Room, Total Youth Football, Betclic.com and Icons.com, to name a few.

I have also travelled the world and love to write about different cultures, food and sports. In the USA I write a Wordpress Blog and a weekly newspaper column about Hawaii's biggest competitive sport - outrigger canoe racing. I also contribute to www.mauinow.com, covering Health and Wellness stories for 'Maui's Most Visited Website'.

I am an excellent employee; reliable, honest, creative and enthusiastic about every new project. I genuinely love what I do, I am professional and it shows in my work....
