About me

I’m a freelance writer and consultant with experience in technology, social media and content strategy.

I have more than 15 years' experience, much of it as a journalist with The Daily Telegraph, in writing precise, engaging and high quality copy. These days I use my skills mostly for corporate clients, often by interviewing senior executives to produce pieces that showcase the company's products, values or thought leadership.

I specialise in technology so I'm comfortable talking to experts in subjects like brain-computer interfaces or microbiome-based medicines, and my skill as a writer means my work can be understood by a newcomer to the subject.

As a consultant, I can advise on how to shape your message for the media -particularly the technology press, how to get the most from social media and how to explain innovative ideas in a way that is compelling and straightforward.

I still work as a journalist but less frequently than before. My work has appeared in Stuff magazine, T3, The Independent, British Journalism Review, The Bookseller and elsewhere. In 2013 I wrote ebooks about wearable technology, the iPad and Apple's iOS 7 software.

Present and past clients include the World Economic Forum, Bloom.fm, McLaren Applied Technologies, Made By Many, Nesta, O2 (via Hope & Glory), Samsung (via Three Monkeys) and Canon (via Nelson Bostock). Please get in touch to talk about how I can work with you.
