Journalism

I am approaching my 30th year 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.


Over the last 10 years I have increasingly found myself addressing issues of social inequality for national and international media.
