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.
