Morning all
It's absolutely freezing this morning (-4ºC), but the sunrise was spectacular. Here's a view over the Blackwater estuary for any of my followers who think that #Essex  is all about orange people in crappy nightclubs making unreality TV shows.

I'm a sucker for obscure geography.

Tech Write UK - Copy written right
Introduction

I am a happily married father to many, and award-winning technology freelance copywriter trading under the name of Tech Write. I have 16 years technical experience behind me having worked in support, development, training and management across both public and private sectors.

My role as a writer for Tech Write sees me writing blogs and articles for some of the largest companies in the world and covering topics as diverse as cloud computing, CRM, personal finance, recruitment and hair loss! I also ghostwrite for some of the UK's most successful digital agencies and their clients. I am a specialist technology/technical copywriter but I can (and often do) write about anything.

I am a moderator for the UK Marketing professionals group - drop in and say hello when you get a chance.

I'm often mistaken for Johnny Depp in public. I'm also a member of the landed gentry. Oh, and I won a @OneMinuteBrief creative advertising award.
