I am a rare breed: I can write, design and build.

Although a Jack-of-all-trades isn't always meant as a compliment, in my experience, being able to understand, contribute at, or even deliver every stage of a project is a huge advantage in this dynamic and digital world.

From large corporations requiring a highly-skilled, versatile all-rounder to small businesses who don't want to pay for a whole team of specialists (and the associated costs of managing them), my expertise in copywriting, web design and web development have been invaluable to both my clients and employers.

Whether you need content for your website, wording for an email or compelling product descriptions that search engines love - I can help.

I've helped many small local businesses get their voice heard in a competitive digital world. And I've also written for many well-known international brands, adapting to their unique tone-of-voice. I research your competitors, your industry, and your products to make sure I get the words and tone perfect.

And not just that. Accurate copy is essential for businesses to be taken seriously. Simple mistakes and errors look unprofessional and will lose customers. My proofreading service ensures your copy is clear, effective, and mistake-free.

Managing your website, or even just your online product range, can often be quite a challenge. Let me help, so you can refocus your time and effort where it's needed.

I have a wealth of experience in web management, including working for global ecommerce giant Amazon.co.uk and managing several national retailer websites.

I can help take the lead role in the maintenance and development of your website, create SEO friendly content to help potential customers find your product or service, or work with your team to plan and develop your site’s style and appearance.

I'm a passionate and enthusiastic web specialist. I use JavaScript, CSS, and HTML together to build accessible websites and develop innovative solutions for online problems.

A website's frontend development can often be overlooked but, as the layer that your users interact with, it is one of the most important aspects to get right.

My years of experience working with agencies has given me extensive knowledge of multiple fields, allowing me to work on projects with the full scope in mind. The work I provide is of the highest quality, fully responsive, and tested on a wide range of devices.

Testimonials

"Amy and I worked together in the Software and Video Games retail team at Amazon.co.uk where she had full responsibility for all digital content for one of our key software vendors. Using data she extracted and analysed herself, Amy made recommendations which optimized performance of campaigns and features and also executed content and copyediting with perfect accuracy and style. In doing this she had to work across a variety of complex internal systems and navigate a large matrix organization. In short, if you’re looking for someone who can combine analytical chops with an eye for good content and an astute understanding of editorial standards, look no further!"

Liz Hosmer, Head of Demand at Amazon.co.uk

"Amy was introduced to me through a recommendation. Her knowledge of the Shopify platform and web development seemed to be exactly what I was looking for and, after our initial conversation, Amy was able to make a reassuring assessment of my website and produce a sensible action plan that would give me the website I was hoping for. I have been extremely happy with the work and support I have had so far. Amy is extremely professional and transparent in her approach and her work has undoubtedly made a big difference. I trust her opinion and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for a first class, honest job."

Ali Tyrells, Owner at ellamora

"Amy's sharp wit and tight copy lines set her apart from the rest. Self branded by her passion and enthusiasm for life, Amy is interesting because she is interested in life, people, places and, most importantly for creatives, the structure and substance of the story. Hire her - she rocks; great ideas, well told stories and a magnetic personality to have in the studio or office."

David McNulty, Director at Studio Donshades
