There are many links to examples of my work in my portfolio, including interviews with sportsmen such as Evander Holyfield, Robert Pires and Mikel Arteta, and musicians such as Meat Loaf, Ian Brown and many of the biggest current UK bands.
Articles on comedy linked to on my portfolio include interviews with Rik Mayall, Omid Djalili and Al Murray.
I am a very enthusiastic writer and I pride myself on quick turnaround time, excellent grammar/use of language and a fierce attention to detail. However, I also have a wicked sense of humour so I should be easy to get along with!
