I love writing.
I am fascinated that words can paint a picture purely through connotation and often without the reader even realising it. I enjoy choosing words very carefully to convey the perfect tone. And, I have to admit it, I could wax lyrical for hours about grammar (but I try not to...).
I always strive to capture the essence of a brand, whilst communicating the particular message in a clear and concise way.
