I am a writer and editorial consultant, working for both magazines and delivering corporate writing for a series of blue-chip clients.
Although my background has been based on the technology of business – IT projects, IT security, Internet business (or Web 2.0, as it’s now been labelled), my work as Editor of GS1 UK’s GSQ Magazine has since taken me into the realm of the supply chain and Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), the probable successor to the bar code across a range of industries: retail, travel and aerospace, health and pharmaceuticals products, the automotive industry, even the public sector or entertainment and leisure.

GSQ Magazine also tracks a series of supply chain issues, including the successful implementation of bar codes within a range of sectors.
An avid trekker, to Morocco (2004), Everest Base Camp in Nepal (2004), Corsica (2005), Croatia (2006), and I hope to Patagonia in 2008, I have an interest in travel writing and the impact of technology on the business of travel. Travolution, the online travel arm of Travel Weekly in the UK, is one of the key titles I write for.
Increasingly, a large part of my work involves corporate-writing: case studies, white papers, ‘opinion piece’ ghost-writing, magazine and newsletter-writing. Quarterly publications for GS1 UK (GSQ) and ICT recruitment specialist Gillamor Stephens (GSinsight) are good examples of the services I offer.
I have written for magazines in the trade press – Computer Weekly, Enterprise, Travel Weekly; for national newspapers such as the Guardian, Daily Telegraph, and the London Evening Standard, and been a contributor to radio and television programmes on technology. My background is a mix of news agency, BBC Radio and 14 years at one of the UK’s leading publishers, Reed Business Information, where I was News, e-Business Editor at Computer Weekly, still one of the UK’s most influential and campaigning business-to-business titles.

With Tony Collins, one of the UK’s leading investigative writers, I am co-author of a management book, “Crash, Learning from the World’s Worst Computer Disasters” (Simon & Schuster). Tony and I are now working together on a novel which we plan to complete later in 2007. Visit Tony’s project’s blog here
My interests include trekking, languages, classical guitar, French Cinema, and the arts, and a range of sports including running, swimming, and cycling, triathlons and golf.
