"Those are my principles, and if you don't like them... well, I have others." Groucho Marx.

I've recently returned to university to study Media and Cultural Studies at Birmingham City University, where I will be exploring the social impact of new technologies on the news industry, and the representations of modern masculinity in the media (among other things).

Previously, I've worked as a journalist where I contributed to publications including The Times, The Metro and The Sun, as well as websites such as Huffington Post, Gizmodo and Gizmag. I've been news-editor at an international press agency, an online news and technology consultant, and I started my own quirky news site, which was named as one of the Top 100 websites in the world by The Guardian in 2008.

In recent years, while my primary duty has been being a stay-at-home father, I've also written numerous features and how-to guides around emerging technologies, STEM education, and photography. My other interests include, coffee, video-games, running and yoga.
