Vastly experienced entrepreneur, award-winning freelance writer and editor who has written for all the national newspapers (including columns for The Guardian, The Independent, The Times, Arena, FHM, etc) as well as extensive experience editing digital and print publications for Graduate Prospects, Not Going To Uni, Huffington Post, as well as creating and editing my own projects Staggered and MAN v FAT.

In September 2009 I started a men's wedding website called Staggered (http://www.iamstaggered.com) which rapidly became "the world's leading source of help for grooms, best men and fathers of the bride." (Huffington Post). By the time I sold Staggered in March 2013 to Chilli Sauce Limited it was helping over a million men around the world every year.

In 2014 I started Man V Fat (http://www.manvfat.com) a free publishing brand which supports and champions men who want to lose weight. The project reached 102% of its £9k crowdfunding campaign and received support from Jamie Oliver, The British Dietetic Association and the National Obesity Forum among others. The magazine attracted thousands of subscribers and now the site is a hub of activity for men who want to get and give support whilst losing weight.
