I am a Melbourne-based web copywriter, journalist, editor and wordsmith with a difference:

My extensive work as an award-winning journalist sets me apart.

That's why companies like KPMG, Data Republic, Dropbox, Loud + Clear, SelfWealth and Envato, along with many more, trust me to write captivating, intelligent and engaging content.

For 10 years I've worked as a technology and business journalist (Rolling Stone, The Atlantic, SmartCompany, Crikey, etc), web copywriter and strategist, interviewing thousands of business owners, cracking stories and delivering satisfying results for my clients.

Patrick was great to work with, meeting every deadline. Most importantly he managed to translate some complex concepts into an engaging white paper for our audience.

My writing has appeared on behalf of my clients in several high-profile publications

 


Blogs, editorial, ghostwriting, longform and everything in-between
 

Shortform

Ongoing blog content, articles, editorials and ghostwriting. If you've got something to say, I can help you say it.

Longform

Do you need to go deeper and explore a topic in more detail, nuance and depth? I can help.

Web

Making a new website, rewriting one or moving to a new design? You need a quality copywriter. It's just as important as visual design!

Your call

Award submissions, speeches, EDMs, annual reports, exec. summaries and more. If you need something written, I can write it.

 
Patrick gets across complex topics to deliver clean, clear copy suited to audience and meeting client needs.

Here's what you get:
 

Someone on your level

I've interviewed CEOs, billionaires and start-up founders who are changing the world. If you're in business, chances are good I've written about your industry.

Copy with strategy

Words are important. But knowing what you want to achieve is critical. I work with to understand clearly what that is before I pen a single sentence.

Your tone of voice

I've written for ASX200 companies, and ghostwritten for CEOs in the Australian Financial Review, Entrepreneur.com and Inc. All in your voice. Not mine.

Timely turnarounds

I'm a journalist. That means I know the meaning of a deadline. We come up with a timeline together and work to hit those milestones.

Results that will satisfy

Sometimes when you hire a copywriter, they impose restrictions on you. Not with me. I work with you until you're completely happy.

Web copy that works

My experience in UX and web design means I work alongside researchers and designers to create copy that fully integrates with the purpose of a page.

 


Staff training
