I’m Grace or GLS as I’m affectionately known in some circles.
I grew up not far from Leicester, moved to Adelaide when I was 15 where I finished high school, got a degree in Commerce (Marketing & International Business) from the University of Adelaide along with a Diploma of Language (German) then moved back to the UK in October 2014 when I got a job in Manchester. I now live in the Peak District.
I ride bikes quite a lot over silly distances, run around my local hills, chalk up on rocks and dabble in outdoor swimming. I love nothing more than being outdoors, being self-sufficient and enjoying great company even if that’s myself.
While cycling is a constant, I’m really enjoying learning how to climb outdoors on the local rocks of Stanage and Burbage. It’s a totally new skillset and thrusts me straight outside my comfort zone every time.
Professionally, I’m a copywriter and marketeer. I like words, I like working with brands to communicate their messages more effectively. You can read more about this side of my life here.
