I’ve written for a number of gaming magazines and websites over the years, including PC Gamer, IGN, Retro Gamer, PC Format, Official Xbox Magazine and the venerable CVG, but I’m perhaps best remembered for five years spent at the captain’s table of PC Zone, which for a time was the best-selling PC games mag in the UK. Since those heady days I’ve launched and edited a number of print and digital gaming publications, among them the long-running Eve Online magazine Eon and meaty multi-format bible Games™.

Away from the flimsy world of magazines I’ve written an inconsequential stack of half-baked fiction and edited two books on the subject of Eve Online: The Art of Eve and Into the Second Decade – celebrating Eve’s fifth and tenth anniversaries respectively.

In recent years I’ve written the occasional Eurogamer article and taken on a few ad hoc consultation assignments (one of which culminated in a Witcher 3 credit), but for the most part my time is spent corralling two energetic and game-curious young daughters. This leaves me just enough spare time to catch up with the games I never had the time to enjoy because I was always too busy writing about them.
