I’ve been writing since I was a teenager, although at the time I was too shy to tell anyone. Over the years I developed my style and grew in confidence, especially whilst studying History with Art History at the University of Hull, leading to the release of a self-published collection of weird tales in 2009.
It was then that my career path moved from campaign management into copywriting, enabling me to focus on a skill that thrives on experimentation and constant development.
As a Drunk Animal copywriter, I love getting to explore a variety of topics, from why teachers are superheroes, to the best wine to relax with after a day’s hard graft.
Classic FM and Fatboy Slim (my music preferences are very eclectic), spiced rum with a cigar (posh af, I know), sartorial style (I even wear a tie on weekends).
Spiders (the arachnids, not the iconic Hull club), rudeness (manners cost nothing), buffering during Netflix (am I right?)
I’ll never forget the series of Playstation 1 ads from the mid-90s. They were even madder than the Tango Man and the Pot Noodle Horn!
As for animals, I'm often referred to as a bear (half the time because I'm massive, the other half when I go to gay bars). However, if I can choose anything at all, I'll say a deer. I'd love to experience being nimble, graceful and majestic, plus I'd get to eat plants and acorns all day. Nom-nom-nom!
