As a freelance journalist I have written about Spain, Catalonia and Barcelona. I’ve covered finance, football, fitness, food and fighting (in the form of MMA — Mixed Martial Arts).
I can write articles, features and editorial to meet the demands of new media or print, but my work ethics are always old school: I research carefully, check quotes, hit deadlines and submit quality copy.
Many of the articles above also feature my photography. I have developed my skills in this area in response to demand from editors who can’t always commission a separate photographer.
Since 2001 I have written regularly for media including:
- The Sun (The UK’s best-selling newspaper)
- Football365 (one of the UK’s top football websites)
- The Evening Chronicle (leading regional newspaper in the UK)
- Fighters Only (internationally-published, market-leading magazine)
- Train Hard, Fight Easy (international fitness magazine)
- Living Spain (UK’s premier magazine for expats in Spain)
- BusinessBCN (Barcelona’s leading English-language business publication)
- BusinessMAD (Sister publication of BusinessBCN in Madrid)
- Sabotage Times (online magazine and syndication agency with over 700,000 visitors per month)
My specialist subjects…
The freelance nature of my work gives me the opportunity to learn and write about many interesting topics. Three, however, stand out:
Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) is the fastest-growing sport in the world. Events regularly sell out arenas and break pay-per-view TV records around the world. I have been involved with martial arts since 1987 and have met, trained with and interviewed some of MMA’s top coaches and competitors.
Barcelona has been my home for almost fifteen years. That gives me an insider’s perspective when writing about the city, Catalonia and Spain in general. Having a Catalan wife and children has allowed me to integrate deeply and write about aspects of local life that tourists will never see. It’s also led me to a passionate appreciation for the region’s cuisine, which leads me onto…
Food and Restaurants in Barcelona. I blog about Catalan food and regularly write about it for magazines and various websites. Spain has become a global culinary superpower in the years that have lived here and it’s exciting to track developments at food fairs, conferences and industry events while still enjoying the traditional, local food culture.
