Write

I like to write. There is something about the written-word that has a magical quality. And hard copy is rather nice to have on the shelf no?

Pre-digital, I've written  3 books (one a novel) and co-produced and edited another and had several 'shorts,' in soft covers as well as contributing to a host of i-D magazine special book projects whilst handing in to a variety of national newspapers, monthly and weekly glosses from i-D Magazine, The Stylist, Time Out, Sunday Times, Elle, Independent, Marie Claire, Eve, Clothes Show Magazine, Here's Health, Attitude, and many more. Of course they are all in my cuttings folder (where we kept everything in the olden days before digital)!

Below is small selection of links to my digital library.
