I have a broad range of experience in technology writing: everything from interviewing business leaders for the IBM company magazine to writing press releases for tech start-ups. However, I specialise in writing features about video games, particularly the weird and wonderful side of gaming. I write for Eurogamer and Kotaku UK in addition to my games blog, A Most Agreeable Pastime (see my Gaming portfolio for more).
By training I’m a scientific copy editor, and before going freelance I was the Copy Editing Manager for the Nature Reviews journals. I specialise in copy editing scientific articles, but I also edit non-fiction books and news articles. I regularly work in house at New Scientist and Nature, where I copy edit news stories and features (see my Science portfolio for more).
In addition to my interests in science and technology, I’m a keen film fan, and I co-host a regular movie podcast: 101 Films You Should Have Seen… Probably.
