As of January, 2009, I currently have a few major projects 'on the boil'.

My main project at this time is a PhD Writing thesis about 'The Role of the Outsider in Storytelling' and how that impacts on the clash of civilizations between Islam and Christianity. I am in the write up period of this and hope to submit for the viva in December, 2010.

When I have the extra time, I am also working on a second draft of a screenplay that I wrote for my MA Writing at Swinburne University, Melbourne, Australia which has been registered with the Australian Writers' Guild.

Finally, I also occasionally contribute content to websites and most recently, I published two articles in a lifestyle magazine called Absolute Thai– http://www.absolutethai.com I am now writing a regular column in the Learning Post section of The Bangkok Post - http://www.bangkokpost.com/Learningpost/ along with other publications such as The Guardian Weekly, jobs.ac.uk, UniversityWorldNews.com, EL Gazette, and many others.

I am available for writing assignments - commissions, editing, proofreading, and general assignments. My rates are reasonable and always negotiable.

Interests: I like the usual array of things: reading & writing (of course), socialising, sports. I also like to deconstruct movies, that is, take them apart bit by bit, like a watchmaker to see what makes them work.
