Hello.

In late 2019 a piece I'd written, "What To Do With Pandemic Flu?" was published in The IET.

I'm a journalist (see below) and an MA bioethicist by training. Which means I like writing about health and technology, good and bad. Utopian and Dystopian. If something is happening now or might happen in the future to change the way we think, work, feel, interact or exist - that's my beat.

I've conducted ~200 interviews with world experts in their fields, TED (et al.) conference speakers and people working in jobs/industries that required absolute anonymity.

So. Please do browse through some examples of my work across the page. If you'd like to get in touch, use this contact form.
