Me

As a creative copywriter, I work with designers and art directors to get to the heart of a brand or problem. I like to think strategically as much as find meaning in everything I write.

COPYWRITING

I have 15 years experience in the design and advertising industry. Graduating with a Bachelor of Design degree, I spent my first 7 years as half of an advertising duo and the following 8 years contracting for design companies whilst diving into parenthood. My strengths are in collaborating with others, being open to being better, and nailing the essence of whatever it is we are trying to communicate. Sometimes it’s through campaigns, other times it’s a brand story. I am equally as passionate about cracking an idea as I am about crafting communications.

IDT

Alongside my career, I am interested in Interactive Drawing Therapy (IDT). It’s really drawing and writing and talking therapy, and it allows individuals to access their own insights. I care about getting to the heart of something, and I think it’s something I’ve always done in my work. By accessing different parts of our brain, there is a subconscious level of work that naturally happens. A drawing sparks a word, a word sparks conversation, a conversation sparks a drawing. I have always looked for ways in which creativity can help people and this is one way that I use my passions and skills on an individual level.
