Hi! Thanks for swingin’ by.
Okay, I’m not really a little pink typewriter – I’m a human! I don’t have a little pink typewriter and I do work in the 21st century, but I am passionate about the craft of writing and its traditional tools, like the little pink typewriter and its always handy sidekick, the little red pen…
I’m a copywriter, editor, and self-confessed word-nerd. Apostrophe misuse (abuse!) drives me crazy.
I work with you – and other collaborators – to create content, print or digital products that help you better communicate with your clients (and potential clients), and help them engage with you – and your brand. I develop quality content and products that are on-brand, on-message, and create engagement.
While I write and edit copy for diverse sectors and audiences, I specialise in technical content for professional services firms in engineering, law, property and architecture.
Real name Jeanette Muscat. Collector of many nicknames, so feel free to create your own.
I love words (obviously), about as much as I love shoes, red velvet cupcakes and a well-made Aperol Sour (needs the egg white)… and dogs.
I was born and bred in Brisbane (aka Brissie), Australia. After snagging a journalism degree and freelancing around the traps primarily in the local music and arts industry, I went for a sticky-beak in the UK. Two years later, then another four in Dublin (it happens), I realised I loved travelling and meeting people from all over the world as much as I love words.
I cut my journo and copywriting teeth in street press and marketing consultancies, improved my Mac skills typesetting books in a publishing house (which I loved!) and doing all manner of things in advertising agencies. When I eventually settled back down under, back in Brissie, I combined the fine art of writing and editing with strategic communications, and learnt to balance right-brain creativity with the glamorous world of engineering, science and other technical fields. Who knew?
I’ve upskilled from print to digital (but still LOVE the print process) and written about everything from fashion and food to architecture and property, to mining and construction. I love getting stuck into messy, technical content as much as I love talking up the latest and greatest hybrid, booze-infused donut-burger.

How it works
I don't just start frantically tapping away at my little pink typewriter keys. I work with you (and collaborators as needed) to create – your content, print and/or digital products – through my Little pink process.
It starts with a brief. Without a brief, I won’t get your messaging and voice right.
Have a peek below at the fabulous infographic of my process illustrated the amazing Jo Wilson Design.
