YOU NEED WORDS. I LOVE THE ALPHABET.


I create powerful, concise English copy that delights, persuades, entertains and surprises

Mel Dark, enchantée.

In the last 10 years I’ve been fortunate enough to write for a variety of global brands and small businesses in London, Toronto and Paris, and I have enjoyed every wonderful caffeine-infused minute of it. I believe that every brief deserves a unique, memorable solution whether it be for an uplifting bra, an investment fund or the local chippie. I’ll take your brief for a walk, carry it in my dreams and cradle it like a baby until I find the right words. We can communicate in French or English – as you like. And since I’m a freelancer, you won’t pay costly agency mark-up fees.

Sound good? Then, let’s chat.

I’m from London

I spent 8 years working in Toronto, I became a Canadian citizen and then I moved to Paris. Then Nice, where I now reside with my family and a few seagulls.

I figure any country that allows me to devour half a pack of butter in an elegant fashion is my kind of place. My favourite French word is pamplemousse.

I made the switch to freelance in 2009. Before that, I had desk jobs at various leading food, music and fashion magazines. I got to work with brilliant photographers and rub shoulders with rock stars. But working from home is fine too.

The fact that I can make a decent living playing around with words, still astonishes me. I work with clients all over the world so distance is never an issue. Let’s meet, on the video chat of your choice.

You're in good company
