About

I’m a professional freelance tech writer. I like to write about things like:

  • Privacy
  • Security
  • Web hosting
  • WordPress
  • Consumer technology
  • Cryptocurrencies
  • Cloud computing
  • Marketing
  • Remote working
  • Electric cars
  • North Korea’s IP address range, and other internet oddities.

I’ve had a computer since I was in junior school (an Acorn Electron, to be precise) and first wrote about the internet in 1990 (age 10) for a class project. I’m a trained technical author, highly experienced writer and WordPress user, and internet obsessive. Prior to working as a writer (and running my own content agency), I worked on IT helpdesks.

Although I tackle different types of content, I love the diverse challenge of creating in-depth blog posts on different subjects each day.

What else? I made music as Printed Circuit. I have two pugs, drive an electric car, and collect cameras. My current favourite is my Lomo Instant Milano. I also have a cute 4-year-old son who is really into technology. Barack Obama follows me on Twitter, for unknown and mysterious reasons.

I have written for sites like Lifehacker, Kissmetrics, the Huffington Post, Dell TechPageOne, Quidco, Olark, Top10VPN, WhoIsHostingThis, and Blogging.com. I’ve also worked as the lead editor for a large affiliate website, Digital.com, which is the former home of the AltaVista search engine.

My article about AltaVista now lives at the old AltaVista URL: http://altavista.digital.com

If you’d like to hire me to write for you, I work on per-word rates, or by the hour. I work exclusively from my own office but am happy to work with clients anywhere in the world. You can email me here.
