I have over 20 years experience as a professional writer. listed here are my peer-reviewed academic papers as well as examples of my published journalistic articles.
In my early career, I was a journalist covering the telecommunications and IT industries. I wrote about the deregulation of the UK and European telecommunications markets and the rise of the mobile networks and of course, the Internet. I was using modems to file copy before the World Wide Web had been invented - when the text seemed to go into a black hole and a sub-editor at the end of a phone line said "oh gosh, it's here, it's in the queue"! In those days, a recurring topic from commissioning editors was "mobile data - will it ever have a real application?"
My first editorial role was at Emap on PC User and then Communications Management magazine, followed by a long stint as a freelance, and my work was published in UK and international newspapers and magazines.
I stopped writing to go and work at ICO Global Communications, and since then I've worked in web marketing and design, until I realised that it was the policy issues that interested me the most, and went back to university to study for my Masters degree.
I used to lug around several chunky portfolios of cuttings, or I used send photocopies of them in the post, but I've discovered that some of my work has appeared in online archives. Here is a selection from my portfolio.
I've also noted that the Daily Telegraph - for which I wrote on a regular basis from 1989 to 1995 - does not publish its archive pre-2000, and that means there's also a large chunk of my published work that cannot be viewed, so I've scanned in a few examples.
