PATRICK MCKENNA

Expert writer

At 6ft 3in and born long after the war ended, Patrick quickly realised he would never fulfil his childhood ambitions of being a jockey or a WW2 Spitfire pilot. So he moved on to make the most of his talent as a freelance copywriter. He has been a freelance copywriter for nearly 40 years and has worked in Zimbabwe, South Africa and the UK. Clients choose to work with Patrick for his precise and concise copywriting.

When he’s not executing with precision, Patrick loves to take photographs, reflecting what he sees, with an eye for texture, colour and unexpected compositions.
