I enjoy a good waffle, particularly on film and pop culture-related subjects. Below are some of the publications I've written for. Samples of this work are available on request – contact me.

'The world's longest-running magazine of cult entertainment', STARBURST launched in 1977 and has been covering the sci-fi, fantasy and horror genres since. 

I joined the team in 2013 and now provide news, reviews and features for both the print magazine and the website. Highlights include interviewing Christopher Lloyd and the cast of the Back to the Future Musical ('You're Gonna See Some Serious Hits', Issue #469) and chatting with a variety of up-and-coming filmmakers about their work for the Independents Day feature.

It's been a real pleasure to contribute to this very visual film magazine, which pairs film journos up with graphic designers. I contributed pieces to the first four issues, including an analysis of cinematic adaptations of Roald Dahl and the history of method acting. Beneficial Shock! is available in stores across Europe as well as online.

An online film magazine focusing on world cinema, the power of the cinematic image, its affect on our lives, and all that jazz. After being a regular contributor since 2012, I was asked in October 2014 to become The Big Picture's editor. I oversaw the team of writers for three years and have now passed over my dictatorial powers, but still contribute to the site from time to time.


I've contributed list articles to a number of websites, mainly covering pop culture and entertainment-related subjects. Read collections of my work at:

A website looking at the craft of screenwriting from an analytical perspective, with each article aiming to get a writer thinking about how they can improve their own scripts. Contributing to Creative Screenwriting is the most intelligent I've ever felt when writing about Star Wars and supervillains.

Because of my work on The Big Picture, I was asked to contribute to this book, which traces the histories of individual genres and directors within British cinema, plus examines the role of the British Film Institute. I contributed four analytical essays, including a look at Derek Jarman's Sebastiane as part of LGBT cinema.
