I scribble about most things that take my fancy, namely, leisure, country walks, reading, art, music, technology, history and business.
Sometimes I just write about the colour of the socks I have on (today they’re blue).
In a professional capacity, I am happy to turn my hands to most subjects and have been published in The Times, The Telegraph, The Guardian nationally, as well as a whole swathe of local publications, too numerous to mention.
Recently, I have been working on a venture, with one or two others, for an up and coming website that will be primarily concerned with art and culture reviews.
If you wish to have your art event covered, please use the contact me button on the bottom of the page and I would be more than happy to attend, if I am in the locality.
At the moment, I am splitting my time between a base in London and my home in Newcastle.
This means that I am no stranger to traversing the country, in its entirety and it is not impossible that I can organise my sojourns to encompass your event, especially if it is somewhere in between those two points. Happily, the vast majority of England comes under that category (sorry, the south west!) and also, being Newcastle based means that often parts of Scotland are well within my reach.
Of course, like every journalist on the planet, I have a half finished novel on the go (a time travelling adventure set in ‘70s Newcastle – it’s better than it sounds, really) and a have penned several sitcoms, one that is stuck in development hell and can’t really be discussed.
Soon, I will be putting links up to all my scribbling and half formed thoughts, but for now I am sticking with the official stuff, like gala openings, exhibitions and local business and culture.
Currently, I am doing research into local businesses near me in Newcastle and the effects of the recent Brexit vote on trade, which I would like to contrast and compare to businesses in London, as well as other parts of the United Kingdom.
I have been focusing on independent traders in the North East initially, so if you are the proprietor of a shop or business in Tyneside or one of the neighbouring counties, I would really be interested in hearing your story and your thoughts on this issue.
Because all journalists need a story to tell!
