JOURNALISTIC CHAMELEON, nosy hack, deft inquisitor; I've been called all three (OK, just the first two).
I've written on a diverse range of subjects - from entertainment to parenting, travel to psychology, real life to technology - for a diverse range of publications including The Guardian, The Observer, Daily Telegraph, Sunday Telegraph, The Times, Sunday Times, Daily Mail, Mail On Sunday, Daily Express, The Sun and Daily Mirror, not to mention countless other national consumer and customer magazines plus many websites.
I’ve even humilated myself on more than one occasion in the unflinching pursuit of journalistic truth. Whatever the story, I always deliver copy accurately, on brief, and with personality.
