Experience

Summary

I've worked with some of the world's leading media, attractions and non-profit organisations, from the BBC and Bauer Media, to REPTA, Paragon Entertainment and Hadrian's Wall. It's all about the story.

Work history

Hadrian's Wall Interpretation Panels
I was commissioned to write stories for 34 outdoor interpretation panels, focusing on the wall’s history, landscape, cultural impact and natural history. These surprising stories have inspired visitors to appreciate that the wall is more than just bricks.
BBC
Expedition feature story
What do you do when one of the rarest creatures on the planet turns out to be an annoying pain in the neck? I went to a remote island of the coast of Mauritius to find out for myself. Read all about it here, in the BBC Wildlife magazine.
Punchy Proposal Document
This proposal document for a new science and natural history attraction in Colombia was produced for Regan Associates and presented to high ranking Colombian officials, including the President of Colombia.
Museum panel copywriting that gets results
The LMWS's £7m refurbishment was completed in 2015, attracting exceptional feedback and rave reviews. I was commissioned to write their panels, guidebook and education resources. Visitor numbers have almost doubled and are 15% above predicted estimates.
Guidebooks with a difference
Following a £12m restoration in 2015, Cardigan Castle went on to win the Channel 4 RotY Georgian Award. I was commissioned to produce a guidebooks that was 'beautiful, inspiring and informative'. The client was delighted with the result.
The Liveaboard Guide
Published by Bloomsbury in 2014, this book explores the liveaboard lifestyle on the UK's canals and rivers, becoming the best selling title in its sector. Bloomsbury have since commissioned two further titles. The Narrowboat Guide was published in 2016.
