Need a freelance writer, specialising in technology and B2B?

Photo: Sean McManus

You've come to the right place! I write inspiring books and articles about business and technology, and help the world's greatest technology companies to communicate clearly.

Writing about technology has been my passion for a long time: I started contributing to computer magazines while I was still at school, and I have worked as a copywriter, journalist, and author, specialising in business and technology, for my entire career.

Over 20 years of experience

I began my career in journalism, writing for transport technology magazines, and contributed as a freelance journalist to Internet Magazine, Internet Works and Business 2.0 around the time of the dotcom boom. After that, I worked as a senior copywriter in two UK marketing agencies dedicated to technology and B2B clients.

I've written for some of the world's leading technology companies, producing magazine articles, blogs, tutorials, white papers, comic strips, video scripts, infographics, social media content, and a ghost-written book, among other things.

Today, as a freelance copywriter, I work with marketing agencies and directly with clients to create effective copy.

Technology expertise

I've written about a wide range of technologies, from the big (data centres) to the small (microprocessors). As a freelance copywriter, I've covered a wide range of industry sectors, including manufacturing, civil engineering, financial services, telecommunications, and IT. Target audiences have included the board (CEO, CTO, CFO), software developers, technical users, consumers, and business decision makers. I've also written internal communications for a multinational technology company. As a hobbyist coder, I've been able to work closely with technical experts to create in-depth content for developer relations campaigns.

I am an author, writing books to inspire readers to get the best from technology, including a number of books about coding for children.

Here are some of the topics I've written about:

  • Accounting (small business)
  • Artificial intelligence (AI) / Machine Learning
  • Big data
  • Business to business (B2B)
  • Business to consumer (B2C)
  • Cloud computing
  • Consumer technology
  • Customer service
  • Data Center / Server technology
  • Education technology
  • Email marketing
  • Enterprise technology
  • Healthcare IT
  • Internal communications
  • Internet of Things (IoT)
  • IT security
  • Linux
  • Music technology
  • Online and offline marketing
  • Processor technology
  • Programming
  • Public relations
  • Raspberry Pi
  • Small business
  • Software and games development
  • Telecommunications
  • Transport technology
  • Usability / UX / user experience
  • Website design
  • Writing and publishing

If your topic isn't covered above, that's okay: I love learning about new industries, ideas and technologies. I can quickly get up to speed with your proposition.

Easy to work with

Because I've worked in-house at creative agencies and magazine publishers, I know how to deliver copy that's easy for you to work with. I have over 20 years' writing and editing experience, and I meet deadlines. Clients appreciate my attention to detail, and my ability to grasp complex ideas and communicate them clearly.

I'm a UK-based freelance journalist and copywriter (based in London), but I regularly work with international publications or organisations, and often write in US English. If you need support on your project, let's talk!
