About Me

About Me


I’m a freelance copywriter.

I work extensively with B2B and B2C companies based in the US and the EU creating blogs, whitepapers, reports, web copy, and much more besides.

Previously I was employed as a professional copywriter, proofreader, and copy editor at bespoke writing company Horizon Writing.

Prior to my employment I studied at Cardiff University, graduating with a first-class honours degree in Philosophy and a master’s degree in Modern European and Analytic Philosophy (distinction).

I also work as a freelance journalist, writing for local, national, and online publications (including MixMag, the world’s bestselling dance music magazine).

Here you’ll find some examples of my work.


Aston International

Working with the award-winning designers at Ashgrove Marketing, I wrote the site copy for corporate service and trust provider Aston International.  After interviewing the Aston team, we decided to avoid overwhelming visitors with too much information. For this reason the copy is short, simple, and to the point.

Company Website


Ultranyx wanted to convey their complex products in the simplest way. To this end, I led a team of freelancers in order to create copy that was informative but not overwhelming. I gave creative direction, wrote copy, edited copy, and proofread copy.

Company Website

Creative Hubspot

Creative Hubspot wanted a modern site that reflected the diverse nature of their business. Working with the company’s in-house designers, I wrote copy that explained every facet of their operation in a succinct and readable way.

“Peter is easy to work with because he understands my requirements quickly and just gets on with it. His writing is well-researched, of great quality and in keeping with our tone of voice. I’ll certainly be using Peter again.” Paul Blunden

Usability 24/7

“Peter was extremely professional and helpful to us in redesigning our CRM strategy.  He was able to quickly understand our tone of voice and deliver copy that was consistent with our other communications.  I look forward to having the opportunity to work together with him again in the future.” Jason Keiles

COO, busuu

SellMyApp - App Development eBook

SellMyApp wanted to create a comprehensive guide to developing an app. After thoroughly researching the industry, I wrote a 20,000 word eBook aimed at novice and experienced developers alike. By breaking down information into manageable chunks, and adopting an informal tone throughout, the eBook is as readable as it is informative. Shared over 500 times on Facebook alone, the eBook was well-received by the app development community.


HVO Search

For over two years I have written a weekly blog for executive search firm HVO Search. I also compile a weekly newsletter and, after transcribing from audio, write-up HVO Search live events.

Company Website


I was the primary copywriter for a series of Hootsuite’s case studies. After transcribing webinars and consulting supporting documents, I presented the most important information regarding each project an informative and succinct way.

Example Case Study

Co-Founder, Comms Axis


bookmundi wanted a series of shareable blogs that explained and detailed some of their most popular destinations. I created a series of evergreen “top-ten” articles that continue to bring in significant traffic to the bookmundi site.

Example Blog


TrekBooking asked me to write a series of mid-length blogs that provided significant SEO benefits whilst remaining informative and readable.

Example Blog


InPlayer require ongoing well-researched industry update posts. By aggregating information from different industry research and news platforms, I write opinion pieces that give structure and narrative to statistics and sensational headlines.
