I am a freelance games journalist and writer with work in magazines and websites all over the place. If you'd like some words of your very own, I can put them in order for you in exchange for reasonable amounts of money.

Below is a selection of some of the online work I'm happiest with; if you're interested in looking at my print work, come over sometime and I'll let you root through my magazine cupboards.
