Biography

I love writing stories whether it’s for brands, fiction or fact.

I’m a senior freelance writer who’s equally happy working for ad agencies, design studios, e-commerce companies, corporate film production companies and direct with clients.

I’m used to working in-house or remotely, in teams or flying solo. Everything from intriguing concepts and apposite headlines to loquacious copy, hard-working websites to engaging corporate film scripts, ear-catching radio and TV commercials to e-commerce, brand books to print pieces, direct marketing and posters.

My writing's also appeared in online magazines, sports publications, short story anthologies, and joke books - many examples of which are on this website.

But I also make short films (drama, documentaries and corporates), and write feature drama scripts on the side (www.hurcheonfilms.com).

In essence, if you’ve got a story that needs to be told, let me choose just the right words for you.
