My name is Claire and I’m a dynamic and meticulously organised digital/print content creator, copywriter, editor and NCTJ-trained journalist with over 13 years’ experience. My work spans the tech, lifestyle, music and wellness sectors, and I particularly enjoy working with vibrant, forward-thinking individuals and companies to create content that entertains, empowers and inspires.
Team-spirited yet fully able to hit the ground running on solo projects, I bring passion, polish and a laser focus to everything I work on, regardless of how pocket-sized or herculean the task. My A-Team skills include writing, content strategising (online and print), proofreading, editing, researching and interviewing, and I have a proven ability for quickly getting to the nub of any brief and understanding what is required of me.
Flexible, resilient and calm under pressure, I can make things, fix things and take things to a new level for your brand. I’m trustworthy, armed with the social and business skills to liaise with all levels of stakeholder, and have bags of energy and creativity for delivering exceptional content every time.
Outside of work I maintain a regular meditation and yoga practice, have a borderline obsession with herbal teas and natural beauty products, and love re-connecting with myself through journalling and reading.
