I’m the founder of Coster Content. As a southerner, I contribute to the ever-growing minority of M25-ers invading Manchester. Besides my love of the English language, I’d describe myself as someone fueled by sport, food, travel, and the great outdoors.
Whether it’s simultaneously trying to read six books at once, pondering to Blinkist in the bath, or binging on podcasts, I have a slight knowledge obsession. As a student of life, I am one of those curious (some might say annoying) people that always asks: why? That, combined with life experience you couldn’t make up, is what makes me the writer I am.
Starting Coster Content has been unreal. I do what I do because I’m hugely passionate about sharing other people’s inspirational and compelling stories. Mostly, I love business. So to me, it’s a pleasure to go out of my way to help my clients reach their goals and succeed through the written word.
I was born and raised in Wales by a small Welsh woman who makes her own soap and a bald Nigerian man, both nurses. From my mother, I got a love for horses and have been riding since I was three. From my father, I got good food and some really curly hair.
No one knows where my love for geography came from. The natural world and the people in it captivate me. That’s why I recently completed an MSc in International Development and a BA in Geography at the University of Manchester.
At Coster Content, my role as a content writer allows me to create original pieces of writing. These articles help businesses promote themselves, and readers to better themselves. If I’m not doing that, I’m either trying to recreate something that looked easy on Pinterest or working on other writing projects. At the weekend I’ll be out with my friends lowering the tone with dark humour and planning trips abroad.
I haven’t mentioned my love of Fleetwood Mac because there’s not enough space to talk about each member in the depth they deserve. I’m saving that for a very lengthy Facebook post that nobody asked for.
I’m the newest member of the team and resident geek. I’m also somehow one of the oldest members of the team which makes me feel… great. I’ve been through university, come out the other end with a degree in psychology, worked as a magazine writer and now get to spend my time as Coster Content’s content editor.
As the content editor, it’s my responsibility to sit back and judge everyone else’s writing like some sort of egotist. It’s great – I feel so powerful. Nothing gets past my watchful eye – bad grammar, bad spelling, bad writing. I’m like a grammar terminator.
Outside of work I enjoy the nerdy things in life: video games, board games, movies, not doing exercise. If you ask me what I’ve been doing on the weekend my answer will probably be one of the above. That or I had a cheeky few down the pub.
I might have been with the company for the shortest amount of time, but I’m here for the long haul. I’ll always be around to talk about the merit of Oxford commas or how cool semi-colons are if you want a chat.
In a world of uni, degrees, and graduates, I consider myself to be a risk taker by being an apprentice. I live for all things creative, including writing, and I am lucky to do a job that consists of writing content all day, every day. If I’m not putting words to paper at work, I’m at home in bed trying my hand at poetry or reading a classic novel.
Writing aside, I love podcasts, theatre, and music. I don’t know if I’ve ever been as shocked as I was when someone told me they don’t really listen to or like music. How is that even possible?!
I adore old music, and I am a secret die-hard Beatles fan – I even want a Beatles tattoo! Everyone says I was born in the wrong decade; they’re probably right.
I’ve learned a lot in a short space of time working for Coster Content. It’s great working with so many different industries and sectors. I’m always learning something new. Whether it be finessing blog titles or developing my vocab – there’s never a dull day.
As a puppy, I’m the youngest in the office. I’m part Shar Pei, part Rottweiler. Based on my paws my mum also thinks I might be part bear. I don’t really do much for your content. However, when you come to meetings, I’ll probably linger around for an ear scratch. I’m a big, clumsy softie with zero paw-to-eye coordination. Please don’t feel intimidated!
