A professional writer and author, my background includes being a qualified marketer and many years international IT business experience (Project Management in custom software development and implementation in ERP, Banking and Finance). I write high quality content, extensively (but not exclusively) on science & technology, IT, project management, business, marketing and defence topics.

That is where I excel. Besides delivering complete website content, my writing experience includes many eBooks - mostly in the field of business, technology and sport - plus articles and content for many websites. Whether it's carbon fiber, business process re-engineering or insurance, I can deliver. Also, if you want an ebook taken through from concept to the final item on Amazon, iTunes or even the hard copy - then I can do that for you as well. My education includes MBA, MSc and BSc, and I hold a Diploma in Marketing from the British Chartered Institute of Marketing.
