Passionate about writing

I started my writing career as a tech-journalist and reviewer on my own website, before gradually transitioning to a full-time freelancer. Over the years I've written for a number of major publications, including Digital Trends, The Inquirer, KitGuru, and ItProPortal, among others, and continue to do so today.

While I still love building and writing about PCs and their accessories, my true passion lies in crafting rich and engaging stories. My first novel, The Medicine, was self-published in 2013. A second, with widely different themes and styles, should see the light of day in 2020. I also wrote the backstory for augmented reality, robot toy-line, Mekamon, and have provided flavour text and backstory for several games.
