Portfolio

My most notable work is for the prominent US technology news website MacRumors, where I write a wide range of content, including buyer’s guides, roundups, reviews, and off-cycle articles, as well as daily news coverage. My work for MacRumors has been cited by various tech publications and news sites.

I have worked for the UK national newspaper the Daily Mirror, and have also written for smaller publications such as The Comment, an opinion-led internet magazine. In addition, I have made contributions to youth-focused publications such as the award-winning Impact magazine and Uni News.

Several companies, including the industry-leading advertising production company Qmuli, bespoke software developer Paddl, iPad accessory maker Typecase, and software company Eltima Software, have used my services as a copywriter. I have also worked for Carpe Noctum, which hosts the UK's biggest weekly student night with well-known brands such as "CRISIS".

My portfolio contains a large number of samples from the plethora of publications and companies I have written for. I have over 1,000 bylines to my name, so it is impossible to provide every article I have published. Additional writing samples are available upon request.
