Freelance Copywriter, Copy Editor, Proofreader

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.

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.

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.

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


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.


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.

Peter did a great job and writes flawless English. I can highly recommend him for anybody looking for a good content writer.

Rasmus J

Peter has exceptional copywriting skills – he learns the tone and voice quickly, and ensures that key messages are used appropriately for SEO. We are also impressed by his research to ensure content is current and relevant, and also that he never misses a deadline.

Co-Founder, Comms Axis


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.



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.
