Writer and storyteller Andrew Morris has a way with words and people. Through his business Tell My Story, he writes for a wide variety of clients from entrepreneurs to artists, and from freelancers to institutions. He also works a Social Media Director for ProZ.com and his diverse pieces for them on the freelance life are read by thousands of translators every day and he maintains an active social media presence in both personal and professional capacities. In short, there are too many words inside him just bursting to get out.
Andrew started out in teaching and training and has lived in over a dozen countries around the world, with occasional dabblings in journalism throughout those years.

Tell My Story was born in 2020 and is already a screaming toddler and growing fast. Andrew lives and works in Andalusia, Spain.
