Freelance business copywriter

JCT Associates Limited

I’m not a person who enjoys talking about me, but for form’s sake here goes…

I’m a freelance business copywriter with more than 10 years’ experience writing for payment industry professionals worldwide. I work for clients in the financial services and risk management industries. I also write in public under my own name for the trade magazine Payments Cards & Mobile.

I can genuinely say that I’ve been there, done that and written it: customer newsletters, brochures, best practice guides, web content and much more. I’m used to writing for busy people and non-native English speakers. So I’m a ruthless pruner of waffle, jargon and anything that gets in the way of understanding.

Originally I’m a graduate in English and German, who started working life writing direct mail promotions for a publisher of subscription-only magazines. A six-week temping job with an international card payment scheme turned into a varied 15-year career, which is how I came to know and write about payments.

In my spare time I enjoy sleeping, baking and travelling to Germany.
