Hello and welcome to my writing blog, and resume.
Surprisingly I have only been writing full time for five years as I have spent the last ten years working in I.T. doing desktop and network support during the day, while dreaming of being a writer at night.
In 2011 I finally plucked up the courage to put up or shut up, and started on a BA Hons in Creative and Professional Writing at Bangor University in Wales.
After Bangor I went to Beijing on a bus-mans holiday Teaching English and then returned home to work on my creative projects while trying my hand at copywriting. After a few months I realized I had been bitten by the TEFL bug and went to Prague to try Teaching English Prague. I have since then suffered from ill health but still chewing away with the writing.
I have travelled widely to India, Nepal, Morocco, China and Czech Republic and have been inspired by the people I have met on my travels. I have certain authors I dream of being like such as Ben Okri, George Orwell, Stephen King, haha thought I best put the King down in case my list falls into pretentiousness. And after all I am just trying to tell a good yarn.
This blog is a mish-mash of many things displaying my interests as a writer and my experiences from the world of work and travel. Feel free to snoop around and drop a comment or a share an article.
If you do need any assistance on copywriting work or writing of any type then please feel free to contact me.
