Hi, I'm Emma. And I’m an Addict.
I think Kipling was right when he said words are our most powerful drug. Because I’ve been addicted my whole life.
Aside from the satisfaction I’d get when mentally correcting the misuse of apostrophes, my pedantry never got me far.
Until I became a copywriter.
When I realised a passion for proofreading could be my superpower, there was no stopping me.
Start-ups asked me to help them with branding.
Wellness centres brought me in to sell their yoga retreats.
And software solutions clients asked me to make their services sound sexy. (Or at least, less complex.)
My journey has taken me from Dublin’s top creative agencies, working for big-name clients (cough, Google, cough cough) to freelancing from my new home in Hoi An, Vietnam.
Little hair, many hats…
Along the way I became a yoga teacher, launched a successful alopecia website and wrote several drafts of a memoir. Which may be ready for the world at some point.
My Publishing background has given me a sharp editorial eye – now I’m a copywriter, editor and proofreader all in one. While managing Lady Alopecia has taught me the value of SEO and how to rank at the top with original, creative content.
When I take on a new project, my aim is to help that client – whatever their size or business – make a meaningful, rewarding connection with whoever they want to reach.
What else? I’m bald, I love puns and the colour yellow, and I strongly dislike rodents. If only there was a visual way to represent this.

Now, what about you? Are you...
If so, we could be great together. But why don’t we go on a virtual date to see for sure?
(Fear not, it’s free! How’s that for a cheap date?!)
