Where Else Can You See Me Work My Thang?
Places where I wrote stuff
At one point I managed to trick the people over at Vice to publish something.
I worked for many years at 69 Degrees where I wore many hats Music Editor, Culture Editor, New Media Development Manager and for an extremely short time men's lifestyle blogger. You used to be able to read my stuff there until it was all deleted in a recent re-brand but now you can just take my word for it, it was the shit.
If you want to read the things I actually got printed on real life paper you can see the archive here, my issues are 25/02/08 - Spring 2010:
EQ View, where what I wrote was both a mystery to myself and the editor.
I've also written for swathes of websites and blogs that no longer exist including SoSoGay, Vada, M Magazine, Mash My Pixel, Who's Jack, Bent and my very own baby Your Face Is An Advert. R.I.P.

The Bake Off, one of Britain’s greatest creations came and went this year and I wrote about it for most weeks. Some weeks I had other things to do like being out on the town, finding my inner sassy and … Continue reading
A bit of pre-ramble here. I’ve never written anything like this before so have no idea where it lies on the scale of angsty teenager to poet laureate. It’s meant to be spoken aloud with some distracting arm gestures to … Continue reading
I saw some people on stage pretending to be other people (in normal circles we call these folk liars.) Then afterwards I got to judge them from a distance and sort of behind their backs, I’m not sure who comes … Continue reading
I saw some singers sing some songs, it was good. http://vadamagazine.com/02/05/2014/arts/west-end-switched
