I was born in 1978 and swiftly discovered a love for language, literature, illustration and the creative arts. Studying Art, Design and Media at Basingstoke College of Technology I explored my passion for words, written, spoken and pictures that are worth thousands of them.
I took this passion with me into my working life, writing professionally for over 15 years with a FTSE 100 company. I would write anything; letters, reports, policy documents, white papers, presentations, blogs, forums, website copy, news items, reviews, speeches and social media. You name it, I wrote it. All the while still writing in my spare time too, producing my own brand of poetry, lyrics, short stories, wedding speeches, magazine articles, copy for local websites and humour which has grown into an online community called The Daily Basingstoke. I've also managed to keep my artistic side alive, with little side projects in illustration, photography and even a little fashion design.
