About

I’m a technical blogger and technical author, and you can hire me to write for you.

I write about:

  • Privacy
  • Security
  • Web hosting
  • WordPress
  • Consumer technology
  • SaaS
  • Cryptocurrencies
  • Cloud computing
  • Marketing
  • Remote working
  • Electric cars
  • North Korea’s IP address range
  • Internet oddities and nerdy miscellany.

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.

My musical pseudonym is Printed Circuit. I’ve released some records on labels like Tigerbeat6 and toured around the world. Oblong Pictures made this excellent video for one of my songs.

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

Barack Obama follows me on Twitter, for unknown and mysterious reasons.

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.
