Over the last few years I’ve written a number of Editorial pieces on a variety of different subjects – the publishing industry – covering digital innovation, the need to improve diversity and inclusivity for both industry staff and the content they help to create, the need for more support of grass-roots inclusive Sports clubs and LGBTQ+ political and cultural issues.
Publications I’ve contributed to include; BBC Sports, The Guardian, iTV News, Sky Sports, Attitude, TheBookseller, BookMachine and GayTimes.
