Are You a Marketer Responsible for Promoting Scientific Technology?

Are you looking to hire a science copywriter?

I can help.

If you’re struggling to find the time and resources to create great marketing content, then you have come to the right place. 

I help my clients create engaging marketing content quickly and cost effectively – marketing materials that are clear, concise, technically accurate, and free of confusing jargon.


Colm is an expert not only in writing and knowledge on essentials for a web presence but also in the field of microscopy and analytics – he was a perfect fit for our target audience. 

Communication was smooth and quick, and he took in the huge amount of information we passed to him in our briefing meetings rapidly and easily. This is an accomplishment in itself, knowing the complexity of our subjects, a bundle of materials science research topics and very specific product features. 

Colm easily learned our corporate language style and the tone of voice that resonates with our materials research academia target group. I would not hesitate to contact him again in case future projects come up.”

About Colm

I have been enthralled by science and technology ever since I was in school.

I started this business as a way of combining my background in science with an interest in marketing and copywriting. I wanted to help promote exciting technology, as well as help scientific companies grow and make more of an impact.

You could say that’s my superpower: blending scientific knowledge with marketing and copywriting skills – I bridge the worlds of science and marketing. 

And my mission is to help companies promote products and services that could someday change the world. Scientific research is often only as good as the tools available to scientists. I think it’s critical that companies get the word out about these tools so we can all benefit.


“Colm is fantastic to work with. His communication from start to finish has been excellent. He wrote four blog articles for me on technically demanding topics that required him to do a significant amount of background research. I was impressed with the outcome, blogs were delivered in a timely fashion and were pitched at the perfect level for the target audience. Colm made edits to first drafts promptly and used his understanding of SEO to tactically place keywords in the text. I highly recommend his services“.

– Adam Tozer, Head of Scientific Content, Synthace

I was a scientist for more than 10 years

And I have worked in research labs across 4 countries. So I have hands-on experience with many of the products I write about. This background has also given me an insight into the problems scientists face every day and how they make buying decisions… because I’ve been one! 

On top of that, I have been writing marketing content for leading scientific tech companies since 2015. These companies include Leica Microsystems, Carl Zeiss Microscopy, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Bruker Nanoanalytics, and Oxford Instruments.

I’ve also written for publications such as MarketingProfs, the ACS Marketing Elements blog, and AZoNetwork

When I’m not writing, I like to hike, visit other countries, enjoy a refreshing craft ale, and wrestle other humans for fun. 


When we first chatted with Colm, we were working with a limited budget for the project. So I was concerned about his fees. And as we hadn’t worked together before, it was a brand new engagement and so I was worried it would take a long time to bring him up to speed on our project, products, and so on. 

After working with him, I found that the quality of work he did for us was higher than expected. The project was to turn an interview with a customer into an article, so I was just expecting the interview transcription re-written in article format. But Colm turned it into a very nice customer success story with a much more engaging style. It was amazing! 

I liked how he understood the business objectives we were trying to achieve, along with his professional suggestions on how to improve campaign performance with gated content SEO. He was also able to provide a whole communications package for the success story, including emails and social media posts. 

Overall, I’m very satisfied with his work”

Hire me as a copywriter

I occasionally take on content marketing or copywriting projects for science companies. 

If you would like to discuss a project, your next step is to drop me an email at to schedule a chat. I always reply within 24 hours, Monday – Friday. 

Some things to be aware of:

– I don’t polish existing text. You get the most benefit when you hire me from the beginning of a project. 

– I like to be kept in the loop from start to finish. 

– I don’t like mumbo-jumbo phrases, such as state-of-the-art, best-in-class, cutting edge, and so on. I won’t include them in any copy I write. 

– I ask a lot of questions about your project and don’t like to be ordered around. I expect to be treated as a partner when I come on board.
