I have enjoyed three decades in journalism. The first decade was spent
as a music journalist contributing to many market leading titles
including Muzik, Mixmag, Arena and Select. Since 1997, thanks to the
welcome arrival of my daughter, my creative horizons broadened
considerably. These days, befitting of my new found maturity, I run
the journalistic gamut from the socio-political to popular culture.
I've examined the dangers of breast implants and the disaster that
has been the Child Support Agency. I've reflected on a multi-cultural
experience and the joys of celibacy. I've looked at bingo wins and
gun crimes, Bratz dollz and bad manners. And much, much more. I write
about the things that interest me. This, I am reliably informed,
makes for interesting and lively copy. I can produce copy for most
anything but I tend to gravitate towards psychology, society, humour,
real life stories, comment and opinion.
the last decade or so, I have increasingly found myself addressing issues
of social inequality for national and international media.
