Thanks for dropping by, and let me introduce myself.
Sometimes I do occasional editorial projects. In 2021 I had a six-month contract as editorial consultant for Liv-ex, the fine wine exchange in London, one of the best and most interesting wine companies in the world.
From 2008 to 2021, I was editor-in-chief of Meininger’s Wine Business International, a global, English-language magazine published by Meininger Verlag, one of Germany’s oldest publishing houses. In that job, I reported from 22 countries.
What else? Well, occasionally I contribute to other publications, like The Guardian USA. In fact, before I moved to Europe, I wrote about everything from the arts to oil and gas and the funeral industry, and before that I worked as an advertising copywriter in blue chip agencies, doing creative work for clients such as Qantas, Adobe, MasterCard and more.
Greatest professional challenge? Writing about European cities for Delicious magazine, and eating 32 French meals in four days. But I did it!
This website is basically my archive. I’ve seen too much of my work disappear when magazines fold, so I’ve plonked a lot of old stuff here.
But I’m always keen to do new stuff! If you have an interesting project, drop me a line through the Contact Form. You can also connect with me on Twitter and, like everybody else, I have a Substack. Called Editrix, it’s a collection of thoughts on the art of editing.
