Hire a freelance writer – me!

My freelance writing journey

I am a marketing communications professional, writer and editor with more than 20 years of combined industry experience in education, government and travel. I transitioned to being a freelance content writer after I based myself in Hanoi, Vietnam at the end of 2016 — and found my skills as a tertiary educated, native English speaker were in demand. Not one to miss an opportunity, I became a freelance writer for Word Vietnam—a beautiful magazine for expats—and the rest, as they say, is history.

How I can help you

Over the course of my illustrious(!) career, I have written content for large corporate website projects and ghost written a memoir—and everything in between. My clients have included an IT start-up, a social enterprise working in the environment space and a social sciences academic journal.
