My Story

Welcome to the world of Creative Monkey. This is David Downs' world; a freelance writer, mental health activist, and a business project manager. I am passionate about sharing thoughts and information on everything that makes the world a little better.

I'm more than a mere collection of paragraphs. I have gathered my many experiences into this small safe space through my years of seeking what makes people tick. As an experienced project manager, helping small businesses successfully grow, my copywriting skills have helped businesses' sales sky-rocket.

I am passionate about nutrition, running, psychology, and philosophy in my private life. I have been a public speaker and coach in small groups. I have run many ultra-marathons, ranging from 31 miles up to 70 miles (along Hadrian's Wall). Along with countless marathons, I am continually training and finding new ways of improving fitness, endurance, technique, and of course, nutrition.

With over 30 years in the workplace, I have worked as a contracted project manager, and bid/copywriter. My speciality has been within a heath, safety, quality, and environmental field and a strong emphasis on corporate social responsibility. I have worked with Vodafone, IKEA, KBR/Halliburton, and smaller organisations like Chequers Cleaning Services. 

As a PRINCE2 qualified practitioner, my work has always been of the highest standard, deliverable within budget and time.
