From an early age, I dreamed of becoming a professional writer and journalist. 

From my bedroom on a Wirral council estate, I achieved my goal, developing a freelance career working with some of the most illustrious media outlets in the world.

With a versatile style, I have reported on a broad range of topics, developing a strong reputation for written excellence.

RADIO. PODCASTS. TELEVISION. COMMENTARY.

My skills as a sports analyst and mental health campaigner have been utilised by major radio stations.

I have appeared on talkSPORT, BBC Radio Merseyside and Radio City Talk, gaining proficiency as an in-studio guest and live analyst.

I'm particularly passionate about podcasting, and I have appeared on a number of shows relating to a wide range of topics, including Optimal Living Daily.

My knowledge of Tranmere Rovers has led to multiple television appearances, most notably with BBC One, with whom I collaborated on a Road to Wembley documentary in 2020.
