    Hello, and welcome to my profile page! ⭐ Consistently top-rated 🥇 90%+ Job success rate 📆 10+ years of experience 1️⃣ Clients on 1st page of Google 👻 Ghostwriter for the CEO of Vogue, VCs, Startup founders, and other industry professionals. 🧑🏻‍🎓 𝗔𝗕𝗢𝗨𝗧 𝗠𝗘 I am an award-winning writer with experience in radio, television, film, and digital publishing. From ideation to execution, I love crafting compelling copy to help you reach your professional goals. Whether it's a TVC, SEO blog post, script, or article, I'll ensure it delivers a clear, actionable message. ✍🏻 𝗦𝗘𝗢 𝗕𝗟𝗢𝗚𝗦 Need high-quality, informative content that commands attention? Having written for both B2B and B2C audiences, I can communicate complex ideas clearly and persuasively. Allow me to help you create a distinct brand voice that speaks to your clients and customers. 👻 𝗚𝗛𝗢𝗦𝗧𝗪𝗥𝗜𝗧𝗜𝗡𝗚 Want to establish yourself as a thought leader? As an expert, your time is precious. Let me shape your powerful insights into valuable content that positions you as a respected and sought-after authority. 🌐 𝗪𝗘𝗕𝗦𝗜𝗧𝗘 𝗖𝗢𝗣𝗬 Can't find the right words for your website? I'll craft strategic calls-to-action and user-focused language that represent your brand and boost conversions, transforming your site into a powerful marketing tool. 📜 𝗝𝗢𝗨𝗥𝗡𝗔𝗟𝗜𝗦𝗠 & 𝗔𝗖𝗔𝗗𝗘𝗠𝗜𝗖/𝗟𝗘𝗚𝗔𝗟 𝗪𝗥𝗜𝗧𝗜𝗡𝗚 Do you require factual, in-depth articles? As an award-winning journalist with experience working at a digital publication, I can quickly write factual content and opinion pieces. 🎥 𝗩𝗜𝗗𝗘𝗢 𝗔𝗡𝗗 𝗙𝗜𝗟𝗠 𝗦𝗖𝗥𝗜𝗣𝗧𝗦 Many clients struggle to transfer their ideas into video format because they need a writer to summarize their points succinctly in a style that packs a punch. Whether it's through radio, podcast, and TV commercials or explainer videos and online courses, I'll ensure your message is effectively communicated to your intended audience on both traditional and digital channels. 🏆 𝗔𝗪𝗔𝗥𝗗𝗦 • Business and Arts South Africa Silver Award for Journalism in the News Category (2016) 📝 𝗛𝗢𝗪 𝗜 𝗪𝗢𝗥𝗞 I work on both one-off and long-term collaborations with clients. For long-term collaborations, I request clients: • Agree to a set volume of work per week/month: This ensures I can plan my schedule and dedicate the time needed to deliver work everyone is proud of. • Give notice: Let me know a month in advance if you wish to end our contract. Again, this helps me plan my workflow. And if, for whatever reason, you need to pause the project, pop me a message. I have clients who work with me on an ad-hoc basis. It's much easier to reschedule projects when I know what's up. • Don't ghost: If we've started a contract, but you no longer wish to work with me, please let me know. If I cannot reach you after contacting you three times, I will presume you wish to terminate our contract and do so. Robust communication and clear deadlines allow me to do my best work for you. 👀 𝗔 𝗡𝗢𝗧𝗘 𝗢𝗡 𝗔𝗜 Currently, there are two approaches to AI: cost-cutting and Google-flagging fears. As a writer with over ten years of experience, I've recently explored "humanizing AI." Here's my take: ORIGINALITY AI-generated content lacks the nuance, brevity, and creativity of a seasoned copywriter. Right now, this may not be true for one or two blog posts or even ten pieces of content you need. However, as more people use AI over the long term, content homogenization will become a huge risk. Do you really want your marketing materials to sound like 90% of the internet's? HUMANIZING AI I can edit your AI copy, but I charge standard rates. From experience, extensively editing AI-generated content to make it sound human is more time-consuming and ultimately less efficient than starting fresh. Plus, if the writing is technical, I have to fact-check everything since AI isn't always accurate. Hiring a human writer to craft your content is the best option if you want engaging copy. If you're paying a flat fee for content, which I prefer, then know it's in my best interest to do the work as efficiently as possible. Clear, well-written human copy also minimizes editing time, which saves clients money. AI DETECTION SOFTWARE I'm happy to work with your preferred program, but clear, concise language - often the goal of good communication - can be misidentified as AI. It's happened to me in the past. After all, there are only so many ways you can say, "The cat sat on the mat." Through a case-by-case approach, I ensure your content connects with audiences through compelling storytelling, whether or not you use AI. 𝗧𝗛𝗜𝗡𝗚𝗦 𝗧𝗢 𝗞𝗡𝗢𝗪 • My rates reflect a commitment to premium content that drives results. • I have a strong track record of writing content for UK, USA, and Canadian clients. • I only do paid test assignments. Sample writing requires the same effort as the real thing.

    "Easy reading is damn hard writing!" - Nathaniel Hawthorne I am a freelance writer for hire. First and foremost, I am a sports journalist, but I am able to write about a large range of subjects. My writing skills are extremely strong and I have a very natural, flowing style. I believe that thorough research is very important before you even put pen to paper (or finger to keyboard). The secret then is to transfer that research into brilliant copy, something I am able to do exceptionally well. I believe communication is key when it comes to freelance work. If I have a question I am not afraid to ask a client. Please contact me for any writing needs you might have.
