Writer and Editor
Hello! I have over three years’ experience of editing both the print and digital versions of a market-leading legal guide. My background is in law – I am a qualified lawyer – hence the bulk of my writing experience to date has focused on the legal and wider business industries. My true passion, however, lies in lifestyle writing; I am interested in everything from fashion to fitness to food. My immediate goal is therefore to gain more experience in this area in order to diversify my portfolio. Ultimately though, I am happy to apply my well-honed research skills to any subject which is thrown my way!
