From the time I was ten years old, I have known that writing is my calling. I’m not going to sugarcoat what I am going to tell you with meaningless adjectives, you have read far too many descriptions like that I am sure. I am a creative writer. I am a poet. I am a novelist. I am unique. If my writing style isn’t what you are looking for, move on to another writer, there are plenty on here. You want me though, because you want someone who lives for their work, for words. You want someone who is as passionate as I am about the English language. You want someone who will give you something other than meaningless clichés. You want someone unique. You want me.

I am a journalism graduate and freelance writer. I mostly write in the music and entertainment fields but I am open to write about anything. Since studying Journalism at the University of the West of Scotland, I have found it difficult to find steady work in the field, and have been doing unpaid freelance work for various websites such as Already Heard, Bring the Noise and Tenement TV. I feel that although this hasn't given me any monetary gain, it has given me fantastic writing experience and the practice has helped me improve. Since then, I have used my writing skills to get involved with various freelancing websites and have been successful in developing my writing skills.
