Dennis Publishing

I’ve been a journalist for over 10 years. I started in 2006 as Staff Writer at Bit-tech.net, where I created the first regular games content and grew the audience to 2.5m monthly users and 180,000 forum members.

In 2008 Bit-tech.net was acquired by Dennis Publishing. In 2009 I was promoted to Games Editor across several of Dennis’ brands, including Custom PC Magazine, the UK’s most popular PC magazine.

I left Dennis Publishing in 2012 to explore freelance opportunities but continue to write for several Dennis brands, including PC Pro, Alphr, Custom PC Magazine, Computer Shopper and Den of Geek.

In 2013 I worked with Dennis Publishing as a freelance Content Consultant & Game Designer for several apps, including Split Decision for Mental Floss Magazine.

Since leaving Dennis Publishing I’ve written for publications such as Eurogamer, The Guardian, The Telegraph, Gamasutra, Trusted Reviews, PC Gamer, ChannelFlip, BBC Radio and many, many more.

My journalistic work has been shortlisted for several awards and you can check my LinkedIn profile for recommendations.
