TRAVEL

Starting my Cosmopolitan Blog Awards nominated travel blog, Fottles Travels while at university and contributing to several travel publications since, travel has played a significant role in my personal and professional development. Superyacht journalism took me from backpacking to the uber-lux side of wanderlust and today I embrace all the world has to offer. From Tuscan mini-breaks to sipping cocktails on a superyacht in St Lucia

COPYWRITING / EDITING

Journalism has been intertwined with content marketing projects throughout my career. A penchant for content perfection means that copywriting - whether that be press releases, product brochures or website text - comes easily to me. Editing is a big part of this process. It can be easy to overlook, but the importance of perfect copy that fully represents your brand in the best - and most appropriate - way cannot be overemphasised. After all, if there are errors in your content and official company copy, then why would your customers think any differently about your products or services?
