“I am a highly enthusiastic, creative and professional individual with the ability to turn around expertly written, original content for print and the web under extremely tight deadlines”
That’s what the CV says but I’ve always found personal profiles difficult to sum up in just a few lines. To expand, I’m an automotive, adventure and technology writer with over twelve years of experience, putting words to print and online for global brands, which include The Sunday Times, AOL, Wired, ShortList & Stylist, Stuff, T3, Metro and many more.
You will find regular automotive reviews in The Sun on Sunday, on Dennis Publishing’s Buy a Car website and Wired UK, where I write about the newest and most exciting vehicles. Regular technology columns at T3, Stuff and Tech Radar see me put the latest gadgets and kit to the test.
You can also find me on a train bound for London, where I’m employed by various agencies to create content for Volvo, AEG and others, as well as acting as a consultant for eBay Motors and more.
Previous full-time roles have seen me edit busy entertainment sections, plan and launch automotive websites and oversee a bustling creative solutions department for arguably the UK’s most successful lifestyle magazines.
In that time I have been shouted at by editors, almost stranded in Madrid thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo and locked away in a Latvian prison for 24-hours (it was for a feature, I promise) but copy has always been filed on time and to the highest standards.
The past few years have been spent specialising in the automotive industry, where I have gained a sizeable contacts book, but I can also be found contributing to a number of lifestyle and adventure outlets, where I’ll often pack a bag and escape for a week in search of an exciting new road trip. Words can be found on Vice Media’s Amuse and DRIVETRIBE.
I am also a firm believer in multimedia and the importance of the modern journalist being able to understand photography and video. That’s why I have invested much money in the best photography kit, spent many tiring years learning various CMS systems (WordPress, Escenic, Blogsmith, AMP), brushing up on basic video skills and undergoing Photoshop, InDesign and HTML training.
If that all sounds about right, please get in touch, I’d love to hear from you.
