I graduated from Southampton University with a 2.1 in Journalism, whilst there I was the editor of the weekly university newspaper and the features editor for the university magazine. Both of which I contributed too regularly.
Upon leaving I took a post grad NCTJ course and now hold a preliminary NCTJ certificate (Law, Government, Shorthand etc).
Since then I have spent the past 2 years writing news stories and features for various publications but most regularly for Brand Protection News, Brand Journal, Poker Pro Europe, Bluff, Card Player and Gambling Business News.
As such I have gained a specialist knowledge of B2B reporting in particular the brand protection/anti-counterfeiting technology markets. Also due to regular playing and 10 years experience with the gambling world I would consider myself an expert in the field of poker journalism. I have many contacts at the top levels in this field and have traveled to several major tournaments in a journalistic capacity.
