I have included links to a small cross-section of my work on this page. While it is by no means comprehensive, I hope it provides a guide as to the quality and style of my writing.
Some of my work is done on a commercial basis, hence the list on this page is only a subset of my work.
If you are interested in a particular type of writing, please contact me for more information.
Financial News & Investment
My main professional focus is financial news and investment topics and I can provide both editorial/opinion articles and white label news coverage, depending on client requirements.
I hold the CFA UK Investment Management Certificate (IMC) and am also a keen private investor.
Stockopedia: I write a weekly Stock in Focus column and run the SIF model portfolio — an archive of all past columns is here.
Motley Fool UK – I write regularly for The Motley Fool UK on investment and financial news topics, covering a mixture of big cap firms and popular small cap stocks. You can find a full list of my recent articles on my Motley Fool profile page (click here).

Other publishing credits
Between 2006 and 2014 I wrote regularly for two UK antique and collectable magazines, looking at antiques and latterly the alternative investment market.
Antiques Info – A UK antiques magazine, now sadly defunct (October 2014) aimed at antique collectors and dealers with a bias towards investment.
I wrote regular features on 20th century British ceramics for Antiques Info from 2006 until 2014. Towards the end of this period, I also produced a series of articles looking at popular alternative investments, such as classic cars, stamps and rare wines.
Collect It! – I wrote for the now-defunct Collect It! magazine over a period of several years from 2007 – 2010. Subjects covered included buying and selling at auction, understanding the condition of ceramics and building a collection.
Collect It! was published by Warner Group Publications. You can see some of Warner’s current publications and output on the Collectors Club of Great Britain website.
Travel & Motoring
I have travelled widely around Europe in my self-built motorhome and have documented the build of our campervan and our travels on the Motorhome Planet website, which I run.
I also write for SimpleMotoring.co.uk, a motoring website aimed at helping motorists stay safer and save money.
I’ve also produced (fairly amateur) videos for both of these websites. Here are two of my most popular efforts:
