Well, hello there!

Oh, hi!

Thanks so much for stopping by my little piece of the web. Fair warning: I’m in the middle of a site refresh at the moment, so there will be some changes happening in this space in 2016, and there may be a few bumps along the way. If you happen to spot any broken links or general weirdness, please do
let me know.

In the meantime, feel free to have a look around and drop me a line if you’d like to chat about editorial projects, freelance writing, social media, the great book you’re reading right now—anything you’d like, really. You can also come hang out with me on Twitter, where I attempt to realize my childhood dream of becoming an internet comedian, 140 characters at a time.
