A veteran and respected consumer technology journalist, I've written features on usability, accessibility, information architecture, layout, design for broadband, CGI scripts, content management, media optimisation, navigation, multimedia authoring, prototyping, content, hosting, hardware tweaking, computer hacking, piracy, browser features, online dating, web celebrities, gambling and just about any other aspect of the Internet and its culture you can think of.

I've produced tutorials on digital production tools like Photoshop, Wordpress, Audacity and many more. I also wrote a monthly 'Watchdog' style consumer issues column for two publications (.net and Windows Magazine) for several years.
