I'm a content designer and writer based between Edinburgh and Glasgow.
I’ve been working as a writer and content designer since 2015 for companies including SmugMug/Flickr, Hilton, and J.P. Morgan. I'm currently a Senior Content Designer at Amazon.
Before that, I was a professional photographer. Now, I take photos for escapism. You can find a bunch of my photography work here.
You'll often find me on my soapbox preaching about accessibility and readability.
My favourite things are filling notebooks with ink, reading paperbacks, and walking my dog.
My purpose as a content designer.
I want to empower people to find the information they need in the way that they need it.
What I can do for you.
• UX writing
• Website writing
• Article and blog writing
• Accessibility and readability improvements
• User research
• Website audits
• User journey mapping
• UX and content design consultancy

What it costs to hire me.
Let’s keep it simple:
— For writing (websites, books, copywriting, marketing materials, etc.), my minimum project fee is £1,000.
— For article and blog writing, I charge £120 for ≈ 1,000 words plus research and editing.
— For editing and proofreading, I charge £0.08/word (minimum fee £500).
For anything else, let’s talk.
Examples of work.
Since these are live links, clients might change some of the content. At the time of writing, these links show examples of my own writing and content design. I'll check on them every so often but they should give you a good gist.
• Various blogs for Mumby's Live-in Care (I work closely with Helen—she publishes the blogs—so although you'll see her as the 'author', the writing was me ☺️)
Plus, loads more. Including stuff I can't show you due to privacy, such as internal apps for J.P. Morgan, help pages for Amazon, and consultancy for a wide range of clients in the travel industry.
