After graduating in 1999 with a degree in Multi-Media Journalism from Bournemouth University, I cut my teeth on Practical Internet (now Practical Web Projects) magazine in Bournemouth.

In 2000 I transfered to Dubai to work for CPI, the Middle East arm of IDG - the world's biggest IT publisher. After returning from the UAE in March 2001, I started working as a freelance writer.

For three and a half years, I wrote for a variety of national magazines on PC technology and peripherals, the Internet, home electronics, digital photography and digital video. I have also had work pubished on film, theatre and comedy.

As well as being a respected writer, with a high regard for accuracy and deadlines, I am also a very keen and capable photographer, and my shots have often been used to illustrate articles I produce. Examples of my camera work can be seen here.

In January 2004 I started working as part-time media officer for the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority. I held this position until September 2004, when I moved to Manchester to take up a full-time position as a Press Officer with the police service.

Although I have now curtailed the amount of freelance work I undertake, I am always delighted to discuss now opportunities and potential commissions. I am available to work on either a per word or per page basis. I can also provide editorial and public relations consultancy services on a half daily or daily basis.
