  • Location: North East England

  • Freelancer: Available

I am an enthusiastic journalist with a drive to foster passion in the cultural communities we often call scenes, covering topics as diverse as local news, court reports, social enterprise and music reviews. I have a strong personal style that will imbue any piece with a sense of wit and originality to make it stand out from the crowd. I believe my skills, enthusiasm and perspective as both a passionate writer, NCTJ trained journalist, committed rock music fan comes across in my work. Obvious or not, my passion for the arts and writing is what drives me as a journalist and music fan in general.
Following several years of training at both Teesside University and Darlington College I have developed a wide body of work and collection of contacts through my work at informnorth and the years of graft that have gone into my self initiated webzine Necromag.co.uk. I am an adaptable writer and believe my writing style is measured, balanced and passionate.
