Service Description

I am currently a Formula One columnist for Bleacher Report UK, but my interests and writing extend far beyond F1, from history to astronomy to other sports. I started my own F1 blog and parlayed that into my paid position at Bleacher Report, and I still maintain that original blog and my own personal blog. I also have experience producing website content, business plans and white papers.

I relish taking on writing assignments on subjects outside my comfort zone, which force me to learn about new topics and then find a way to explain them clearly to readers.
