The Downs Low About Me

I'll never forget a wet Saturday afternoon, not being allowed out to play, and making the awful mistake of saying to my mum that I was bored!

In my childhood days, being bored was a swear word in my mum's world, and she would often revert to washing my mouth out with soap in these situations. However, on this particular afternoon, she told me to write a story.  

And so it all began!

I have written for personal pleasure ever since. I have devoured books about writing and been on courses to help improve. Even in my adult career, I have been responsible for writing anything that needed more than two sentences strung together.

I began writing applications for grants (I did a fair amount of charity work in my younger days). 

David Downs, Content Writer

As the internet world flourished, I soon became involved in writing pages for the company, which we soon learnt were called intranets! I even began writing an extranet, an intricate weaving of two businesses' intranets so they could work on a combined project. Halliburton and Conoco-Phillips were in place to share their most private and intimate details.

I soon worked on company policies, quality management systems, and annual reports. I was well beyond the gateway writing and worked on training programmes and then marketing copy.

Exciting times were still to come when I was involved with environmental issues and then bid processing and managing. Working with a small family cleaning business, I advised on client engagement, sales, and marketing and saw them grow with multi-million-pound contracts!

As you can see, my pedigree as a copywriter and a content writer is second to none; proven in the ever-changing world of commerce.
