Experience

Editor

I've spent close to two years as at WinBuzzer as a Microsoft-focused writer and editor. The wide variety of products enabled me to gain experience across the tech industry, including gaming, cloud, software, and hardware. In my time there, I've written close to 1500 articles.

Independent Contributor

Working for App Trigger gave me a chance to write about one of my true passions: gaming. As well as news, guides, and feature articles, I got the chance to review AAA titles before their embargo, covering games such as Wolfenstein II, Shadow of the Collusus, and Need for Speed: Payback. The site helped build a familiarity with a wide range of content types, as well as the industry in general.

Writer

Firewall.cx gave me the chance to gain further experience in long form, technical content. There I created guides and reviews on VPNs, IP-PBX, Tor, Hyper-V server and more. All content had up to five SEO keywords, contained extensive research, and was up to 10,000 words long.

Indepedent Contributor

In my early career, I had the opportunity to write for popular online magazine Social Student. The site is home to hundreds of thousands of students per month and marked one of my first forays into article writing. While there, I wrote a total of five articles, covering gaming, net neutrality, software, and drinking. The experience allowed me to become familiar with WordPress and develop an early writing style.

Comissioning Editor for Games

From 2014-15 I was a Commissioning Editor for games at Milk., a University magazine. My role was encompassing, and during this time I wrote, edited, planned and marketed content. I managed a team of seven people, conducting meetings and liaising with the marketing, photography, and design department to ensure content was consistent and met the overall brand image.
