I have been crafting words for more than two decades.
I calculate that over the course of that time, I must have written more than three million of them – every one carefully chosen to educate, entertain or convince.
Those words cover a broad range of topics. On one day I might be writing about how companies are using nudge behaviour to convince their business travellers to save money. The next I might be writing about the latest Internet of Things innovations. The following week could see me write a piece on algorithmic censorship by the social media giants, a review of a family-friendly hotel or something on black holes and the cosmos.
If you wanted to pin me down, the topics I write about most are travel, science and technology, and business.
The list of publications I have written for is a long one and includes The Times and Sunday Times, the Evening Standard, Business Travel News Europe, Index on Censorship and Family Traveller. I write for both online and print and for both general and specialist audiences.
I have also written more than a dozen books, including The Origins of the Universe for Dummies, De/Cipher, The Story of Codes, Aiming High: the life of ski and travel pioneer Erna Low and How to Get a Sofa Around a Corner.
