Currently, I’m the Managing Editor of ClassicFM.com, the world’s biggest classical music website. My first novel, ‘Bobby Denise is Reigning Rampant’, is being published by Unbound. I’m also the co-author of a book called ‘Charting The Classics: Classical Music in Diagrams’ and the solo author of ‘Classic FM Handy Guides: Video Game Music’ (both via Elliott & Thompson).
I was a staff writer for The Fly (RIP) and my reviews, features, interviews and news have appeared in The Quietus, BBC.co.uk/music (RIP), Rolling Stone Middle East, Sabotage Times, The Evening Standard, Smoke: A London Peculiar and more.
An article I wrote for The Quietus on Queen’s soundtrack to Flash Gordon is due to be published in ‘The Mammoth Book of Freddie Mercury & Queen’, which is forthcoming via Robinson Publishing.
I was also a music researcher for BBC Radio 4’s Something Understood and transcribed music for the end pages of David Almond’s book, ‘Ella Grey’. My first stab at a short story was published in the F(r)iction literary journal in 2015. I expanded it into a novel called ‘Bobby Denise is Reigning Rampant’, and it’s now open for pledges on Unbound.
I live in Peckham, South East London.
