A conscientious and trusted journalist, I create written content and video content primarily about technology and engineering. As a freelance, I have also written about other topics such as financial services and healthcare. I pride myself on the ability to analyse and explain intricate technologies that impact society.
I enjoy working in teams and have proven that I can be enterprising within organisations. I have the proven ability to manage large editorial and content projects.
I was a senior editor and writer on E&T Magazine for nine years. While on the magazine, I was shortlisted by The Professional Publisher’s Association (PPA) in the prestigious category ‘business writer of the year’ for my work on revealing how young people in the middle east were planning clandestine meetings using the power of social media – more than a year before the Arab Spring.
I was also a finalist for the British Society of Magazine Editors Awards in 2013 for leading an in-depth investigation in fake electronics which was picked up widely by the national media.
I specialise in writing about and investigating the technology industry – both software and hardware – as they relate to the business – which needs to keep abreast of the latest trends, issues and engineering breakthroughs.
I have more than 20 years experience as a technology journalist. I have written for The Daily Telegraph, The BBC and many leading UK and US technology trade titles.
I am regularly called on for comment by the broadcast media and national press.
I am a recognised expert in his specialist field and appears regularly on BBC and commercial radio as a technology expert.
I have demonstrated an ability to write insightful and investigative features on this diverse industry that is both accessible and without oversimplifying the writing for my knowledgeable readership.
I have also written produced and presented several broadcast reports and I supervise the content from other reporters. As well as looking after E&T’s Video channel, I have also worked for Al Jazeera and Agence France Presse.

My biggest exclusive to date happened in 2003 when I was freelancing on the business newsdesk at BBC News Online. I reported on the UK’s first major phishing incident. This was picked up by all the national newspapers, BBC TV News, ITN and Sky News the next day. I was the first person to write about it in the UK in a financial services context.
