Journalism | Photography | Web Design


I'm a journalist with almost 20 years experience of writing for and editing some of the biggest names in UK publishing. I spent seven years as editor of MacUser magazine, and have written for titles as diverse as Good Housekeeping, Men's Fitness and PC Pro.

I write books — both fact and fiction — almost all of which you can find on Amazon. In most cases I produce not only the words and pictures, but the layouts, too.

I'm always keen to take on new challenges — with new and old contacts alike — so why not get in touch and see how we can work together? Email or give me a call on 0845 004 5590.



Over two decades, my writing has appeared in some of the UK's most recognised titles, including The Guardian, Auto Express, Men's Fitness, Good Housekeeping, The Evening Standard, PC Pro and MacUser. I am widely published online, on sites such as Cnet and Pocket-Lint.

Book Writing

You'll find my titles on Amazon, including Focus on Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, Apple Aperture 3: A Workflow Guide for Digital Photographers, The Complete Guide to iPhone Photography, How to Publish Your Own eBook and many more. Click here to view my books on Amazon.


Whatever you're selling and whoever you need to talk to online or in print, I can help you to produce high quality, fully-researched content that promotes your product or service in the best possible light. Working to any deadline, the result will be informative, persuasive and engaging copy that works hard.

Web design

I have extensive experience of designing for the web, and for three years wrote Computer Shopper magazine's monthly web dev column. You'll find examples of my work at Happy Campers,Spiffy Themes and elsewhere. Whether you're starting from scratch of looking to revamp an existing site, I can help.

Print production

With fourteen years experience of working in-house at various magazines, and many years since then working freelance, I'm fully conversive with Adobe InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator. I can fit in to any existing workflow or take over layout and production tasks altogether, depending on your needs.

eBook creation

eBooks now outsell print books through online bookstores. If you need to produce original ebooks, or convert existing print products for digital reading, my services include end to end production of books for Kindle, iPad and other e-readers, complete with covers and interactive elements if required.



I've been writing for magazines and papers, and authoring books, for close to 20 years. Over that time, I've contributed to some of the biggest global publishing brands on subjects as diverse as fitness, photography, motoring and technology.

Writing is more than just a job — it's a passion — and whatever I'm working on, from a 50-word snippet to a 50,000 word book, I relish the opportunity to produce carefully researched, accurate copy for as wide a range of outlets as possible.

I'm also an accomplished editor, both online and in print, taking books and magazines through the complete production and publication cycle, from conception to print, with full responsibility for content, accuracy and legal compliance.

Web design

Whether you're building a site from scratch or revamping an existing web presence, I can help you achieve the results you're after. I'm experienced in developing with HTML5, CSS3, WordPress and Twitter Bootstrap.

My combined services provide an end-to-end solution, allowing you to pick and mix a package that includes the raw underlying code, images and written content, allowing you to offload the complete development cycle.

As well as working directly on live sites, I've helped thousands of readers to improve their own online personas in three years of writing the Web Expert web development column for Computer Shopper magazine.
