INFO WRITING BROADCASTING TRAINING VOICEOVERS SHOWREEL CONTACT
I am a freelance journalist - specialising principally on sport - writing for a number of British and American publications, both in print and online.
My strength is my versatility and wide range of contacts, breaking stories and interviewing the people who matter in a variety of different sports, while focusing primarily on basketball, athletics and various Olympic sports.
Basketball is a speciality - I am the editor of MVP Magazine, the UK's leading publication in the sport - as well as serving as basketball correspondent for a number of British newspapers. I cover international basketball as a correspondent for ESPN.com and I pontificate regularly on the NBA for Give Me Sport as well as writing a weekly betting blog at Unibet. I formerly edited and published Britball.com, which provided the most comprehensive coverage of the sport in the UK and Ireland.
I contribute to a variety of publications on athletics and triathlon in the UK and overseas, including several national newspapers and Athletics Weekly and am the current chair of the British Athletics Writers Association.
For my work, I have been shortlisted both in the British Sports Journalism Awards (Investigative Reporter) and the Professional Basketball Writers Association Awards (Game Story).
Having previously worked within the NFL in a public relations role, I am also a keen observer and commentator on American football - and have reported from both Super Bowls and World Bowls after Europe chronicling the ups and (first) downs of the much-lamented but now defunct Scottish Claymores. My Only in America column ran for several years, chronicling the madness behind the games.
Additionally, I have been contracted to a number of major events, including the London 2012 Olympic Games and various FIBA basketball championships, to provide in-house content, media guides and other reports.
More generally, I also undertake specific copy-writing commissions on request.
Outside of sport, I've contributed to publications on export and international trade and am a contributing author of both "Exporting to Scandinavia" and "Exporting to Ireland", published by Kogan Page in 1998. I also write on the business of sport, principally in Stadia magazine, and on the media.
My work regularly features in several media outlets including:
