John is by far the best writer we work with. He's quick to understand a brief and always delivers original, insightful and creative work that we and our clients love. A natural communicator who understands business at every level and knows how to put the disco in discourse.
Director, London Media
As a senior journalist, it’s not surprising that John knows what newspapers and magazines are looking for and how to angle and pitch stories to secure coverage. He has an innate understanding of stories, which he now blends with a commercial understanding of brand goals. His ability to find angles to resonate with particular titles, editors and journalists is impressive, as is his terrier-like tenacity – he does not let go until he’s got a result. Combine this with his first-rate contact list and he is definitely someone you want on your side when running a campaign.”

The best rewrite merchant I’ve ever worked with.
Associate Editor, The Sun
John is a real rarity. He has a perfect mix of wit, humour, searing intelligence, original ideas and spot-on news judgment which combine to produce perfect prose. I’ve seen John’s work up close as both a writer and editor. He’s brilliant at both. But there’s something particularly special about his prose - not just the writing quality (which flows like liquid gold) - but the ideas themselves are unique. Very few writers around are as erudite, original or as interesting to read.
John's mastery of writing meant he was always going to manage the transition between journalism and commercial copywriting with ease. Everything he's done for us has been faultless. He's a copy machine - you tell him what you want and the content comes back ready to go.
