Story
Tagline
I'm obsessed with technology and I write about it
Introduction

I live in Edinburgh and work full time as a freelance writer and editor. I have a number of my own websites and I also work for various clients in print and on the web. I am passionate about technology, especially mobile devices and video games.

I worked in the games industry where I started out as a games tester at VIS Entertainment working on titles like State of Emergency then I worked for Outerlight as a producer and game designer on titles like The Ship.

I worked as a Managing Editor at Bright Hub covering the mobile technology space and I worked as a Creative Director at Rock The Deadline providing content marketing for software and tech companies.

I still have a passionate obssession with gaming. When I'm not working or gaming I like to surf. I'm also a big fan of horror movies.
