Hire Me

Do you need an experienced writer, poser, speaker or promoter? I can help!

Writing

I've been writing since I could put crayon to paper. Since then I've scribbled and tapped my way through millions of words - short stories, essays, articles, blogs and marketing pieces, even award-winning poetry (OK, I was 8). My career has been a logical progression from a degree in English Literature, to my 'big break' as a junior copywriter and my ensuing in-house roles, before redundancy reared its ugly head in mid-2009. And that's when my current freelance adventures began!

Throughout my life, I've studied the art of writing and put it into practice many times over. Through this award-winning (as recent as 2010, thanks Cosmopolitan!) blog, during my time as an employee and latterly for my freelance clients, I've successfully persuaded people to buy clothes, shoes, lingerie, beauty products, tickets, magazines, books, and music; and I've convinced others to try gin, whisky, sherry, running and lots more. I don't just talk people into things - I also do regular insightful, humorous or advisory columns and blogs for various magazines and websites - nothing gives me greater pleasure than researching and writing up informative, inspiring articles.

So, what can I do for YOU? My tried-and-tested skills include:
  • Copy for print adverts, flyers and promo pieces
  • Web copy, banners and e-newsletters
  • Blogging and social media
  • Writing and editing press releases and articles
I love to work with small businesses, and my quotes can be tailored accordingly to fit any budget. Whether you want quirky, engaging, friendly, punchy or simply straightforward, well-written and concise copy, I can help. 

Do email me if you'd like to chat about a potential writing project, whether for your site or company, or on my own blog.



Speaking

I've given lots of talks in my time, to audiences both little and large. They're usually on the subject of vintage fashion and glamour and occasionally on the art of seduction and flirting tips drawn from the screen sirens of the 1940s and 1950s; but are invariably full of inspiration on making the very best of yourself, both physically, mentally and stylistically. 

I also compere events. Message me and we'll discuss things!



Modelling

Read all about it in more detail here.

Hiring me for your photoshoot brings myriad benefits.
  • With four years' experience under my belt, I know all my best angles so I get great results, quickly.
  • I can style my hair in an array of 1940s and 1950s 'dos and change it quickly between set-ups.
  • I can do my makeup in a period perfect style to a highly professional standard. 
  • I have a frankly alarmingly large collection of vintage and reproduction clothing and accessories. 
My own styling skills and wardrobe negate the need for a stylist in most cases, although I'm very open to being styled for brand shoots as well! I also have dozens of clothing and accessory contacts so can pull them in for editorial shoots. But, and perhaps most importantly, my blog is read by up to 2,000 vintage-devoted people every single day, so when I post the pictoral results, you're guaranteed a lot of hits.

Event design & promotion 

I've been putting on themed events, by myself and with others, for nearly three years. I love to come up with ideas and concepts for events and locations, source props and put it all together and watch people enjoy it. This has led to all sorts of interesting things, from the creation of an enchanted forest in a pub for a 50s B-Movie-themed Halloween party in 2009 that's still talked about to this day; to designing, singlehandedly planting and building a vintage garden for Harvey's Sherry's Ideal Home Show exhibition stand in Spring and Winter 2011. Contact me and I'll tell you all about it and we can discuss what we could do together for your event.
