I have been namechecked by everyone from David Soul to my nan – and feel very proud, indeed!
Below are some links to my published work over the years.
As creative writing consultant for MotivatEd Ltd, I was involved in several projects:
– London 2012: Get Set goes global –
In 2011-12, I was contracted by Motivated Ltd to create quality teaching resources for primary, secondary education and educators around the world. These teaching resources were produced for the London 2012 Olympic Committee (www.london2012.com)
– Rugby Football Union –
I worked on more teacher-student resources for Motivated Ltd, this time with the RFU as the end-user in time for the Rugby World Cup.
– Footee / Rugbee –
I wrote interactive eLearning games that used sport to help children focus on the UK National Curriculum.
Research Media is a publisher that runs a series of science magazines under the umbrella name International Innovation. As associate editor for Research Media, I have written a great number of articles and interviews that put focus on the scientists of today who are making groundbreaking discoveries.

Kemptation (www.kemptation.com) is an international music site that delivers regular news, reviews, interviews and mixtapes on the most exciting, up-and-coming artists from around the world. The site has grown considerably since its inception, with more than 30 writers, photographers and music producers contributing regularly. While I started Kemptation alone (everything from the concept to the design and implementation), I now head up an entire editorial team.
Besides editorial and management, I also write news, reviews and features for Kemptation. For a complete presentation of my work, please visit my author page.
Bearded Magazine is a popular, former-print publication that now exists in Internet form. This, by no means, hinders the quality of the magazine, which offers its readers an unbiased and celebratory view of the often overlooked independent music scene.
I started as one of Bearded’s contributors, reviewing records and writing features, before serving a year as the magazine’s Reviews Editor.
Founded in 1988, the Oaxaca Times is a quarterly publication that connects English-speaking tourists with the local culture of Oaxaca, Mexico.
Between 2007 and 2010, I worked as a reviews writer for Kruger Magazine. Although the publication sadly met its demise in 2010, it had won enough awards to be hailed as the UK’s second favourite free music magazine. The boffins behind its website are currently putting together a site that will act as a montage of everything Kruger magazine has done for us. Here’s what you can see so far: http://www.thatjoefella.co.uk/work/kruger-magazine/
PRETTY MUCH AMAZING
Pretty Much Amazing (PMA) is one of the more popular music publications out there in the blogosphere.
REVOLVER SANTIAGO MAGAZINE
Revolver Santiago is becoming more and more popular by the minute. Affiliated with The Santiago Times, Revolver Santiago is the place to go for anyone wondering what’s happening in Chile’s Big Smoke.
A music publication that endeavours to cross the sonicsphere, Stereoboard has gained a large following. In 2010, it finally got into the top ten most visited music sites in the UK.
Columbus, OH, USA
Although unaffiliated with the Ohio State University, UWeekly nevertheless caters for its students, bringing them informative, relevant and, quite often, humorous news.
My Briefs is a sports humour site that covers everything from football and golf to baseball, basketball and ice hockey. I spent a term writing for their football/soccer column.
Gobshout was a community fanzine that provides its subscribers with a regular dose of music news, reviews, features and comedy.
THE FRESH OUTLOOK
The Fresh Outlook is a not-for-profit news source that prides itself on its impartiality. The publication strives to provide fresh, up-and-coming news without the hidden political agenda. In 2010, I edited bits and pieces for them. Here is their website: http://thefreshoutlook.com/
UK MUSIC REVIEW
UK Music Review is an online music publication based in the South of the UK. I wrote a number of reviews for the publication. This is the only one that I have been able to find.
It’s always nice to get a namecheck. Here are a few hollers and mentions I have received over the years:
The University of Gloucestershire’s alumni association run a monthly feature on past students and where they are now. They chose me for the January 2011 issue. This is where I am, or was at the time.
Thanks for reading!
