As it says on the tin, I’m a freelance journalist, researcher, copywriter and publicist. I’m a cities, culture and regeneration specialist, though I work across many social commentary fields. I like working with the creative, intellectual and not-for-profit sector.

I was an academic for some years, writing three books and numerous research articles. I still do qualitative research (and use it in my journalism), and I’m an enthusiastic if part-time psychogeographer. I’ve done plenty of report writing in sustainability and urban regeneration.

I’m active in my community, helping with PR for local events. I founded and am a director of Wivenhoe Creatives, which aims to promote local creative industries. I also curate the Off The Rails exhibition space at Wivenhoe Station.
