Hi, I'm Charlie.
A Manchester-based writer passionate about the world of eating and drinking, socialising and travelling, and cultural pursuits.
I'm available for commissions on restaurants, dining culture, urban culture, tech, travel, Manchester and the North West, and exploring the local area and beyond. My previous work has been published online for The Telegraph, Red Bull UK and platforms like Creative Tourist, I Love Manchester & The State of the Arts.
And I'm a confident photographer, supplying high-quality photos alongside my writing - supper clubs, venue openings, personal profiles, restaurants, bars, business events & more.
My passions include - but are not limited to - restaurants, home cooking, wine,
beer, coffee, art, fashion, theatre and more. I also hold a level 1 qualification in wines from the WSET.
I have years of experience in a wide range of journalistic roles - having led the University of Manchester's student media group in 2015 and 2016, and working with regional trade publication Prolific North since 2018.
I'm also an experienced copywriter, working at Manchester agency PHMG from 2017 to 2018 and providing freelance copy work for a range of other clients.
