January 2017 update

I am working full-time as a Lecturer in Journalism at the University of Salford, while developing research interest and still freelancing.

I have written a chapter on Brexit and the British press for forthcoming publication. I delivered a talk at the Liverpool Hope University based on the paper.

I wrote a feature for the inaugural edition of Ethos Paper on HCT Group, featuring an interview with the organisation’s Tracey Vickers on sustainability, transport and social enterprise.

I continue to write theatre reviews for WhatsOnStage.com, reviewing Fiddler On The Roof at the Liverpool Everyman Theatre.

I was the featured guest on The Motoring Podcast.

I worked with a group of students from the University of Salford to interview people sleeping rough for an investigation into homelessness in conjunction with the Manchester Evening News.

I contributed my regular column (on ultra-low emissions in fleets), along with three car reviews, to Professional Manager Magazine.

I contributed an article to the Salford Business School Magazine, Ignited, on the possibilities for education and automotive sectors in the North-West following Brexit.

December 2015 Update

I’ve just completed another semester’s teaching at the University of Sunderland and University Of Salford. From January 2016 I will be working full-time at the latter, lecturing in online and digital journalism.

I am engaged in an ongoing copywriting job for Future Fusion for a client in the travel industry.

My most recent columns for Professional Manager can be found on this site – or in the magazine itself.

I wrote an article on the closure of the SSI Redcar steelworks for New Statesman In October.
