Hi - I spend most of my time writing, commissioning and editing stories for the spectrum newsletter PolicyTracker and managing the publication's website and email services. I also produce the occasional research report.

For Thomson Reuters, I contribute to every issue of the British Company Law Newsletter and undertake various other editorial projects, one of which was to produce a news service and a range of guides to doing business in London for the Business Link website.

I contribute regular articles to IBA Global Insight, the flagship publication of the International Bar Association, and The In-House Perspective, the IBA's magazine for in-house lawyers.

I am the editor of Legal IT Today, the magazine for the global legal technology industry.

I've written and edited business reports for Lyonsdown (on connected TV, information security, microelectronics etc) that were distributed with the Guardian, The Independent and the Daily Telegraph. One recent report, for the new publishing company F, examined the pensions crisis and was distributed with the Guardian in October 2013. The next one will focus on risk management.

For four years, I wrote, commissioned and edited stories and research for monthly voluntary sector newsletters (Lottery Monitor and External Funding Bulletin) published by Electric Word. I also helped to organise regional and national conferences associated with the titles.

Information about my many other weird and wonderful past assignments is available on request!

Other favourite topics: voluntary sector, EU regulations, financial services, corporate governance, cable, satellite, pay TV, film, DVD, telecoms.

Employers prior to freelance existence: Screen Digest, Euromoney, Analytica.
