About me

I’ve always been interested in expressing complicated ideas in the clearest way.

I started out in magazine journalism in 2005, while completing my critical theory MPhil at Cambridge. By 2006, I was Deputy Editor of a national property magazine. In 2007 I was approached by a publisher, and went on to do three humour books.

I worked as a digital copywriter for big agencies like Wieden & Kennedy and UsTwo in London for several years – but London wasn’t for me. In 2012, I moved to Sheffield after winning a creative technology contract, and within five years I was a successful digital artist. I was Rambert’s first digital artist in residence, and I even exhibited at The Lowry.

Since leaving the arts in 2018, I have been investing in property and learning about finance and business. I am a volunteer at Edinburgh’s wonderful financial history reference library, the Library of Mistakes, and am constantly writing and reading about technology, economics and world business issues.

Outside of work you’ll find me exploring the beautiful Fife countryside.
