I was the writer/researcher on Jamal Edward's Self Belief: The Vision - the first business book to go to #1 in the iBooks chart.

Prior to that I wrote four non-fiction humour titles for Michael O'Mara. One of my books - Universally Challenged - was a Sunday Times Top Ten bestseller, reprinted several times.

I've written features for national publications like The Guardian, Mixmag and Dazed. My first break in journalism was in 2007, when was I was a runner-up in the The Guardian's Mary Stott Prize (700 entries).

From 2008-2013 I was Singles Editor for Drowned In Sound, writing a weekly column of music reviews (collated here). This means I have almost certainly listened to more middling indie rock than you.

As a CTLLS-qualified FE tutor, I ran the Music Business course at Access to Music, Norwich teaching students how to make music videos, write music journalism, negotiate contracts, put on events and stay sane as a freelancer.
