I have worked in journalism for 20 years. I started as a financial journalist and, 15 years ago, moved into mainstream features and comment writing, writing across much of the national press. I kept a foot in financial waters by editing Professional Investor and Investing for Growth magazines. I've been freelance for a decade and I have a column in the Daily Express, where I also work as an editor on the Comment desk. I also write about art: I wrote about collecting for The Times for seven years and now contribute to How To Spend It I am also the core UK-based correspondent for Canvas magazine.
