About Me

I’m a UK-based freelance writer, critic, editor and technology reporter.

I’ve written about art, business, science, many films and film festivals and film makers, old comics and cartoons, education and subculture.

This has been in places like Sight & Sound, The Comics Journal, Physics World, Solrad, Little White Lies, Cléo Journal, Optics and Photonics News, Critic’s Notebook, So Film, Tripwire, The Film Talk, Marquis, and originally way back in the mists of time Comics International.

I was an editor at IOP Publishing for its last years in the commercial magazine trade, and still contribute to the technology news website that arose from the ashes. Most new written pieces get a mention on this web site, and there are a couple in the Freelance Journalist Directory too.

From time to time I have chaired and participated in panel discussions at film festivals and comic conventions, spoken at technical conferences, addressed film studies students, and a while ago wrote the press and publicity materials for a low budget fiction film shot in London and Chicago which won some awards and spawned a spin-off recording artist. One day I might do something like that again.
