If you want incisive, direct and compelling English language content, that captures the attention of consumers and helps brands express themselves more powerfully, I'm your writer.

WHO I am

I was a journalist in Australia but got lured into advertising. I won some awards there and then relocated to London, where I worked in some famous agencies, and won some more awards.

Then I moved to Germany.

Luckily I've worked at some great agencies, with some exceptional clients on brands like Zeiss, Montblanc, Lufthansa, Milka, Siemens and Bosch.

I've written copy for sportswear, automotive, beauty, FMCG, corporate, hardware, software, high-tech and fin-tech. Amongst others.

Is your English so gut wie your Deutsch?

What do I write? How about long copy, short copy, above, below and through the line, B2B, B2C, direct mail, social content, radio and TV, analogue and digital. I've also written blog content. And some corporate publishing. And I've loved doing it. 



If you need fluent, forcible, elegant and persuasive copy with the power to express strong emotions in striking and appropriate language, I can write it.

The words I write create demand for products and services. They help agencies, brands and entrepreneurs to stand out and build their businesses.

Mein text could be your competitive vorteil!

I write copy and content for advertising, websites, brochures, presentations, packaging, brand experience, scripts, SEO, creative treatments for Radio, TV, YouTube and online social media content.

I work for many German agencies and clients adapting original German text into correct, convincing, credible and effective English copy.


WORK I've done

For over fifteen years I've worked as a freelance copywriter and translator for more than sixty agencies and direct clients, almost exclusively in Germany.

I've worked for some of the most successful and creative agencies in the world including Saatchi & Saatchi, TBWA\Chiat-Day, Kolle Rebbe, Grabarz & Partner, DDB and Zum goldenen Hirschen amongst others.

I'm always keen to meet with people and work with exciting new clients on fascinating new projects.
