Freelance since October 1988. During this time I have been Editor-in-Chief of NETWORKING MANAGEMENT EUROPE ('92-summer '93). I was Editor of FACILITIES MANAGEMENT - an editorial only 12x a year subscription title - from issue two in 1994 to July 2002 and am an Editor and write for Corporate Research Forum (business books), Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, (RICS) web site for facilities management, FMX, Premises and Facilities Management, BANKING TECHNOLOGY, iSERIES NEWS UK, The MANUFACTURER, WORKS MANAGEMENT and MANUFACTURING COMPUTER SOLUTIONS amongst others. During my freelance career I have written for a broad spectrum of titles (eg THE TIMES, THES, ECONOMIST titles, TECHNICAL REVIEW MIDDLE EAST, AFRICAN REVIEW, INTERNATIONAL TELECOM USER GROUP quarterly, IT WEEK, various networking titles, DIRECTOR, etc). I have also devised, organised and chaired conferences, mainly to do with facilities management issues. I have also done some VOICEOVER work for radio, and put myself in the frame for extras work relating to TV, film and ad shoots. I like any challenge (within reason and cost). I have been doing some market development work in the area of buildings insurance solutions for property professionals (contact me to learn more).
Prior to working as a freelance I was Editor of IBM COMPUTER TODAY (2.5 years) and before that Editor of SYSTEMS INTERNATIONAL (8.5 years). Before that I was a correspondent on COMPUTER WEEKLY (4 years).
I won awards of excellence in 1993 and 1994 in BT Technology Journalist of the Year Awards for work done on Networking Management Europe and The Times newspaper respectively.
No major dietary requirements (if I don't want/like it, I don't eat it). Don't like hot sweaty crowded atmospheres (like at some exhibitions!) Travel - which I like - is tempered by the demands of being a freelance and the ever-present cash flow problems.
