Audio Trails and Apps

When I started in heritage interpretation, most of my work was writing for printed trails and panels. Today, I am still busy writing interpretive copy – but the end product is often different. Much of my text is for audio trails or apps which can be downloaded onto mobiles or other devices.

My skill is to produce words that flow and sound natural – as if people are being given a personal tour.
