About me

Hi, I’m Natasha Spencer-Jolliffe, and I love words.

Listening to them, learning new ones, putting the perfect ones down on page to make that sentence just right, and whizzing them around again until they’re just so.

And of course, nattering words to chat, relate, put the world to rights, ask questions, and generally find out more about the world and us in it.

“Natasha and I worked on an interview feature with the founder of Bulldog Skincare. As we are expanding in our availability in Asia it was a perfect time for her to grill us on our plans and views of the market.
