Bio

Hey there. I'm Lydia, and I'm a content freak.

 

I first cut my teeth as a writer while studying for an English degree at The University of Auckland. Between classes, I contracted as an editor for busy academics, and temped at Kiwi content marketing agencies.

 

After a run-in with a social entrepreneur got me writing for non-profit organisations, I developed a taste for long-form brand communications. I've been busy ever since, freelancing as a copywriter and ghostwriting for CEOs and thought leaders. Haven't looked back yet!

 

A digital native, I write organic copy for humans and algorithms. Online and in print, I can help your big business or lean start-up get to the point with a few forceful words. If it's professional, polished copy you're after, I'll hit you back with elegant, sparse lines. If that's not your style, I'll find and refine that rough-edged tone you're searching for.

 

Any and every project is a challenge. But I can make things simpler for you. Need a hand? Just ask.
