Hi there! My name is David Ralph, and I founded Content North East in 2016 with the aim of providing high quality content and copy to small businesses in the North East and beyond. However, I’ve been writing for much longer than that.

Born and raised in Darlington, I graduated from Teesside University with a BA (Hons) in Business Management in 2006 and gained the NCTJ Diploma in Journalism in 2013 while working for a commercial vehicle hire company. During that time I wrote news articles for The Northern Echo, Teesside Gazette, and The Teesdale Mercury.

Notably during this period I also wrote features and online content for fcbusiness magazine, helped a group of students with a small business start-up, and began studying PR through the College of Media and Publishing. It was this that inspired me to write for other local companies, and I still do.

There are several examples of my writing on my blog if you wish to take a look, and a few stories from businesses I’ve written for in the past here. Otherwise, please feel free to get in touch to hear more. I hope to hear from you soon!
