I'm a freelance creative copywriter, currently working in London.
I've spent most of my career encouraging people to drink, drive and use their phones. Just not at the same time.
Last year, I also set up and ran my own business called The Lad Pack. An online toiletries subscription service which resulted in me sending a lot of condoms through the post. It failed, but I learnt a lot. Including not to be late with self assessment tax returns. I actually still have 600 packs of condoms in my living room. Please contact me if you'd like to make an offer. They have a BB date of 2017 – I wish I had the stamina to use them myself.
I've also co-founded a new online dating service called Tab. It launched January 2016 and has caught the attention of many tech publications such as Fast Company, The Next Web and Product Hunt.
