Former local newspaper staff journalist (reporter, subeditor, page/publication editor), most significantly editor of the Teen Spirit weekly youth/music page - "West Berkshire's answer to NME".
Various freelance writing projects over the years: Regular feature writer for Out & About magazine, arts reviewer and interviewer for Newbury Weekly News and www.newburytoday.co.uk, and occasional contributor to the music website LouderThanWar (www.louderthanwar.com), celeb gossip site OMG! and LightsGoOut punk zine.
Previously I was a regular columnist for Hobsons Publishing's Student magazine, and feature writer for overseas student and sports teacher/student publications and the Good University Guide.
I have also produced copy and content for advertorial publications and features, for the Newbury Weekly News, including "Bring Music To Your Ears", which won Best Paid-For Advertisement Feature at the Newspaper Society's Weekly Newspaper Awards.
Currently looking to boost my writing profile, and am available for freelance work - features, interviews, reviews and press releases.
I put all my work on my website The Smudge after they've been published, so for an overview of the type of work I've done over the last few years, please have a look.
