The short version? I’m a Nottingham born and based writer, poet, gamer, podcast host, music journalist, and host of The Meddlesome Meeples Show.

The long version?
I’m a music journalist, a writer, and a freelance management consultant and trainer with many years of teaching experience. I’m also a podcast host and run The Meddlesome Meeples Network.
Having had my poetry first published at around 12 years of age, I decided to publish a collection of poetry written during my adolescence entitled “Meanderings Of A Young Mind” in 2014. A second anthology, featuring a much more mature selection of poems about a wide range of subjects, will be released in 2017, entitled “Reflections”.
Drawing on my experience of working in mental health services, I am also working on a book about dementia entitled “Circle Of Pain” as well as a book about autism spectrum disorder (ASD) entitled “Tales Of An Autism Dad” (title TBC).
As a music journalist I write reviews, present news and conduct interviews through Paradise Rock UK, working with record labels and agencies from the UK, USA, Canada, Germany, Italy, Ireland and Japan. Additionally, I work with a number of talented musicians to promote their work via websites and social media.
As a management consultant I works with companies on issues including web design, social care, health and safety, training and social media management. As a public speaker I am used to speaking to audiences of over 1,000 people, and have taught in large groups, small groups, and on a 1 to 1 basis.
