Working across fields as diverse as urban geography, education, culture and health, I write, edit and proofread copy to ensure your message is clear, succinct and on brand. Think blog posts, articles, academic theses, newsletters and website text .

Crafting cultural content for I amsterdam

Creating and managing content for I amsterdam kept me on my toes —  you wouldn’t believe how much there is to see and do in Amsterdam on any given week! My work covered social, online and print.

Who wants to play?

This Is Ikon’s blog Play focused on and highlighted extraordinary creative pursuits in art, design, architecture and interiors. I edited Play for ten years (2010-2020) from wherever I was in the world. It’s a role I continue to cherish.

“What a sensitive review of my exhibition Proof at the National Portrait Gallery.”
