Who is Megan Crockford?
Lover of Words and Grammar
I’m Megan Crockford, but everyone calls me Meg – it sounds much less formal.
I’m an Australian freelance copywriter and communications specialist who established Crockford Communications in 2017.
I originally hail from Far North Queensland, land of the mosquito, killer jellyfish and the crocodile. I’ve slowly migrated south (definitely not for the winters), enjoyed a stint in London, and am now a resident of arguably the most liveable city in Australia, Melbourne.
I have a Bachelor of Journalism from the University of Queensland and over 18 years of experience in communications, media, digital media, public relations, copywriting, editing and publishing. Having worked across a variety of industries including major sport, automotive, finance, insurance, engineering, fashion, government, small business and not-for-profit, my writing is adaptable to any subject matter.
That all comes in handy when I’m creating mind-blowing content for you!
I’m a clean-freak and a perfectionist who’s always on time. Sport is the love of my life, and there aren’t too many I haven’t tried. In my younger years, I was a representative gymnast and an Australian touch football player.
Running is also my thing. I’ve completed four marathons (including the NYC Marathon in 2018), my first at the ripe old age of 30. With multiple sporting injuries and an ACL reconstruction under my belt, I decided I needed to take things a little easier and took up dirt bike riding a few years back; you don’t have to pedal that right?
Surf Life Saving has also played a huge part in my life. One of my greatest achievements was winning Life Saving Queensland’s Summer Surf Girl (SSG) in 2008. SSG is a 12-month fundraising and leadership program for females lifesavers. I raised $83,000 for my club – Surfers Paradise Life Saving Club – (while working full-time), won a zippy little Suzuki Swift and became the ambassador for Life Saving Queensland.
I continued my involvement program for 11 years as a judge and mentor. I’m a fully-qualified lifesaver and continue my involvement with the lifesaving movement through my work on media projects and international drowning prevention programs with Life Saving Victoria.
I’ve often been heard quoting my famous cliche “100% or not at all”. Don’t worry these tacky types of lines will never appear in the content I write for you, but it is my mantra and something I live by. When it comes to my work and clients, my attitude is the same, and I guarantee you’ll be delighted with the results.
