West Bromwich, United Kingdom


Home page:

For more than 40 years I've been a professional journalist and editor. I've lived near Birmingham, England for 12 years. Before that I resided in the United States.

I'm a freelancer and have a fully-equipped home office. It's where I work most efficiently and is my preferred work place. But I will work short assignments at your facility if that seems best to you. I can write from anywhere in the world -- -- thanks to the Internet (and sometimes various airlines). Recent articles include datelines from Germany, Japan, Switzerland, Sweden, France, the USA, Canada.

I'm author of three chapters of the newly-published (April 2003) book, DNA-50:The Secret of Life. I'm also author of a book on Internet Security issues and solutions, Internet Security Issues and Solutions, published by Bloor Research. I'm a member of the Association of British Science Writers (ABSW) and the Internet Press Guild.

During my career I've worked as a magazine and tradepaper editor; a freelance journalist, and newspaper reporter. This work has been for various print and on-line publications world-wide.

I've covered everything from IT and Telecoms to Nanotechnology, from sports to the arts, from nuclear energy and the environment to government and politics, from antiques to health issues, and from the law to education.

Interests: IT, Telecoms, IT & Telecoms Security, politics, education, etc.
