    Fantastic storyteller.

  • Meet the story ace.

    I'm a writer who believes in the fierce economy of words and the value of infinite curiosity. It means that my night job, writing short fiction, is informed by both history's fascinating facts and boundless fantasy. In my day job, writing brand content, every word matters. I find fresh ways to communicate complex ideas better and faster.
