about me + email

I’m a freelance writer, critic, scientist, editor and occasional journalist.

Among other things, I’ve written about technology and business, many film festivals and film makers, old comics, education and subculture.

This has been for people like Sight & Sound, the Institute of Physics, Tripwire, SPIE, Little White Lies, Chemistry World, Critic’s Notebook, So Film, The Optical Society, The Film Talk, Marquis, and a long time ago 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.

A while ago I wrote the press and publicity materials for an 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.
