About

I do a variety of media things but my main interests (in no particular order) are web content, hyperlocal media, data driven journalism, UXD, video, photography and Open Data.

My interest in the possibilities of Open Data for better government have come about through running the Love Wapping hyperlocal site.

Below are a few mentions of Love Wapping in the media and academia.

I have worked as a journalist and editor, professional photographer, user experience designer and senior producer.

I also have eight years experience in criminal forensics.

As a professional photographer my work has been published in The Times, Financial Times, Daily Telegraph, Sun, News of the World, Daily Mirror, Daily Mail, Guardian and Sunday Times amongst others.

I led the team which built the first Big Brother UK site for Channel 4 and Endemol. See “So, where were you when Nasty Nick was kicked out of Big Brother?” by Mark Lawson of The Guardian for more details if you missed that one.

I have degrees in Computing and Artificial Intelligence (BA) and Media Studies (MA) from Sussex University.

In short, I do not fit into any particular box.
