A bit more about me

I was born in Ghana and raised between there and the United Kingdom. I’d like to think that my outlook embodies the best of both worlds. I studied Mechanical Engineering at the University of Hertfordshire, UK; where I won the prestigious IMechE best research project award in 2005. 

I started my career  compiling manuals for machinery in the food sector. Since then I’ve spent a large part of my professional life conducting research on green technologies at Ford. I am a co-inventor of a patented thermal system at Ford. A recent spell at The Dearman Engine Company saw me lead a team on a UK government project to develop a cryogenic engine for hybrid buses.

I lived in New Zealand for a while where I got straight into designing an innovative fumigant recapture system for use at the Port of Tauranga.  Whilst in NZ I also became Technical Director for Locus Research, a leading edge product development company. Compiling technical documentation was an intrinsic part of my engineering career.

Additionally, I am uniquely experienced with a broader worldview, having co-founded a UK social enterprise supporting NGO’s in developing countries to deliver education programs. My contribution to the UK social enterprise space was recognised with an invited Fellowship of the Royal Society of Arts, as well as membership of Co-operatives London. 

Founding a social enterprise in 2012 is where I cut my teeth designing copy of varying types. I was responsible for all the words on our WordPress website.  That included all marketing blurbs, blogs, voice-over script for motion graphics and website SEO. As the founder, I was also responsible for writing and compiling our technical documentation for suppliers, product packaging and product usage instructions. I was able to secure big media wins through my writing with the likes of The Guardian Newspaper, Women’s Health magazine and the PR giant Ogilvy & Mather. 

If you’ve read this far, the crux is this: I can translate technical jargon into easy language or convey opaque messages into solid concepts. I can do this for technical, compliance or marketing purposes. Get in touch to see if I can help
