I originally graduated in Chemistry and, afterwards, worked in high-tech industry in marketing and communications; in addition, I did a few spells working in advertising.
Because of the high-tech nature of the sectors in which I worked, a key part of my job was explaining scientific concepts to the wider world. In that regard, I helped write campaigns which aimed at demystifying supposedly obscure areas of science that affect everybody on a day-to-day basis. I’m pleased to say that I picked up a few awards for this work
My first published work was an April Fool’s article in a yachting magazine and, since then, I’ve been a frequent columnist, contributor to industry journals and on-line blogs as well as setting up and editing some others. I also helped to develop a TV series that finally saw the light of day in the US.
When I’m not writing, I’m an avid musician, awful cricketer and I live in a village near Oxford with my patient wife and insane dog, Dino.
