I have been writing professionally for over 15 years. After receiving my degree in English Literature and German from University College London, I cut my journalistic teeth at The Big Issue Magazine in 2006, investigating, interviewing, and reporting.
I was part of the first wave of ethical, organic SEO writers at Adfero in 2008, providing content for a variety of B2B and B2C clients. During my time there, I covered everything from celebrity fashion to the Global Financial Crisis on tight deadlines.
Over the years, I have written for New Statesman, The Royal Society of Arts, The Huffington Post, Druglink, and many independent clients, including writing about professional development, startups, and entrepreneurship as a regular writer for Directory Journal and Pakwired.
I naturally gravitate towards writing about mental health, addiction, and other related issues. My own business website, Smyls, became the highest-ranked website in the world for drug and alcohol addiction in 2013-4 thanks to my content, plus SEO and copywriting skills.
I was a regular freelance writer for Foundations Recovery Network, providing unique content for their rehab centers and mental health websites. I was also a regular writer for StopFryingYourBrain, providing engaging, informative articles geared towards young people.
I have written two books on addiction and had two academic papers on the subject published by Oxford University Press.
