About me

I'm a writer, an expat, and a teacher-facilitator. I provide copy-editing and content writing services, creative writing workshops and events. I am an authentic and empathic individual who approaches new challenges with enthusiasm, actively seeking new opportunities to develop whilst not being afraid to publish work and seek project feedback.

What I do
  • I write and publish my own work.

  • I assist people, causes and companies to communicate ideas, stories and projects.

  • I work with publicity pieces such as press releases.

  • I am a natural storyteller and at heart a creative writer. When leading classes I teach others writing skills, but see myself more as a facilitator of my students and of their ideas and thoughts.

  • I’m passionate about the benefits of creative writing and bringing it into the local community, with a particular interest in writing about mental health and religious and spiritual issues.

  • In 2018 I launched Write, Odense, based on the island of Funen (Denmark), through which I offer English-language writing workshops and events.
