I am a driven person, one that has a great deal of passion and determination, but also one that doesn't quit when things get tough. I followed each of my childhood dreams, graduating from university with a degree that really did give me that Indiana Jones status, and then became a freelance writer shortly after.

I started writing for others in 2011 when I was still in school, creating The Control Room for gaming news and reviews - even going so far as to start securing deals with EA and Curse before we closed down (due to us deciding to focus on our studies).

That didn't stop me though, and I started freelance writing professionally in 2016. Due to the combination of my skills and motivation, I have worked for some incredible people and companies, expanding my portfolio and giving me new levels of confidence. I am the perfect writer for you, and for your company, so feel free to drop me a line anytime.
