Masters degree, Writer, Editor, Social Media whizz
Hi there, I'm Christian: a post-graduate qualified writer, editor and journalist with a decade of experience in the world of writing, editing, proof-reading and social media. After over 5 years experience working full-time in London I have decided to embrace the life of a digital nomad - taking my skills (and my life) on the road in order to see more of the world (and write about it too).
I have a BA in Creative Writing and Cultural Studies and a Masters degree in Journalism. I've been a Newspaper and Website Editor in Australia and the UK, I've interviewed VIPs like Kylie Minogue and Tori Amos, I've edited and crafted web copy for Google Maps and Guardian.co.uk, and I've created web content and social media strategies for a range of clients, including global brands like Volkswagen, Starwood Hotels, FutureLearn.com, Jobsite UK, Tetley tea and Akzo Nobel / Dulux.
Social media - if you're looking for ideas or content, advice on when, where and what to post, or support in managing or growing your community, please contact me. These days, social advertising campaigns are a great way of rising above the noise, and I have a great deal of experience in this field. I can devise advertising campaigns and strategies for Google Adwords, Facebook and Twitter (including Custom Audience campaigns using pixels and/or your own customer data). I've helped some big clients (like Vinspired.com and FutureLearn.com) to double and even triple their Facebook and Twitter followings through consistent, well-crafted content as well as ad campaigns.
I'm an experienced writer and editor. Need an interview, blog post or press release? I'm your man. I am experienced at writing in many different tones of voice, from warm and cheeky to serious and professional. I have experience proof-reading and sub-editing for UK newspaper giant The Guardian.
If you need an audio file transcribed, I'm fast and accurate.

“It's an absolute pleasure to be writing this recommendation. I have worked with many freelancers, but I have never worked with a freelancer like Christian.
Christian is all those things you want from a colleague. He's professional, efficient, kind and most importantly, really, really good at what does. And what he does best is content. In fact, Christian is a content maven.
Christian is a fantastic writer, content editor and community manager. He helped grow and increase engagement on our client's social media channels, worked alongside me on influencer marketing projects and undertook content audits on hundreds of blogs providing in-depth and accurate analysis. Each task was taken on with enthusiasm and completed with care.
