Some fun facts…

I prefer coffee over tea, but always drink peppermint tea before heading to bed.

Roger Federer is my favourite tennis player EVER. He is the GOAT. No question. I even wrote a blog post about him.

I can pretty much recite the script of ‘Fawlty Towers’. The episode with Mrs Richards is my favourite.

And did I mention I’m working on my first novel?

I’m also easy to work with, meet all deadlines, and have lots of happy clients.

I recently engaged Nerissa of The Melbourne Health Writer to complete some work for a new product being launched. Nerissa was so easy to work with, required little direction, and completed the work in what was a VERY tight deadline. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough.

I highly recommend Nerissa. I was referred to her recently by a friend who had heard some good reports. She certainly did not disappoint. She was very easy to work with, always communicated her timeline well and stuck to the schedule. I was very happy with the result and look forward to seeing it online when my new site goes live.
