I'm a freelance writer based in south London in the UK. My full CV is available on LinkedIn, but in short I write anything from funny scripts to entertainment news and clear, concise copy. Before that I gained over 10 years' experience producing digital and social media content for companies like the BBC, MTV and The National Theatre.
