“You gotta laugh.” That’s the caption of the image above. Here’s why.

I’m a writer. For me, writing is about people. How we’re all different. Have different feelings. Use different words to express these feelings.

And how words can be used to make people feel better. Humour helps. You gotta laugh.

It helps me to continue doing my work – use words and ways of combining words.

What I do

As a copywriter I work with people in organisations who need to connect with other people.

As a journalist I listen to individuals, give them a voice and make it heard.

As a historian I review and describe what makes us the way we are.

Finally, through workshops I train people to use language successfully in business, education, charity and public life.
