Journalism and copywriting
I’ve worked as a journalist and copywriter for my whole career.
The discipline of writing for a living has helped hugely with my screenwriting, prose and playwriting – and given me loads of inspiration. Here’s a selection of my work to date.
I’ve written short and long-form editorial on loads of subjects for magazines and websites including Vogue, You Magazine, Bizarre, Blah Blah Blah, HOT, Raygun and many others.
MTV AND MORE
I’ve worked both full-time and freelance for MTV, VH-1 and other broadcasters, working on international events and producing content for programmes adverts, online and print in addition to writing corporate speeches, biographies, press releases, video scripts, PR materials and more.
I’ve worked regularly for Channel 4 and E4, writing programming information, publicity materials, promotional copy and reviews and features for FilmFour.
INTERVIEWS, AND CONTRACT PUBLISHING
I’ve written articles, conducted interviews and written copy for consumer and corporate clients on a huge range of subjects from music, TV and film to travel, antique fireplaces and, um, gas.
COPYWRITING AND PR WORK
I’ve worked on many consumer and corporate accounts, producing press materials, video scripts, press releases, press packs and more.
I’ve also worked for many websites, producing short-form and interaction copy based on customer research, analytics and testing.
