I decided to create this website because if you google me you'll most probably find a salacious mix of gossip, half naked photographs and lifestyle and opinion pieces, so to save you the time and energy I've chosen a random selection of articles I have written and included a half naked photograph too.

I have been published in The Huffington Post, Glass Fashion Magazine, Gay Star News, GMFA, The Hospital Private Members Club and 'Meat' magazine (that's where all the half naked photographs are).

My writing style is eclectic, irreverent, adaptable and commercial.

Because of my work I am always asked about dating and relationships which has lead to my writing a column for datingadvice.com and appearing on Channel 4 whenever they need someone to laugh inappropriately or say something offensive about love or life.

I also create brand image & marketing campaigns for clients within the fashion industry. My clients have included Abercrombie & Fitch, Donna Karan, Prada, Hollister, Giorgio Armani and Jack Wills. I have also written copy for John Lewis, William Yeoward and MatchesFashion.com.

You could say my whole career has taken me from the high street to high end.

Could you walk away from everything that defines you?
This week a friend of mine will walk away from his rapidly growing clothing line. He will switch off his iPhone, turn off his Mac, and drop out from Facebook, Twitter and every other social media. He will give up the ambition that has made his fashion business start to be recognised worldwide, and he will give up the social life that sees him flit in and out of hundreds of peoples lives every day.

Nigella Lawson and Her Little White Lines
She's a saucy minx that Nigella Lawson isn't she?
When she's not stirring up all kinds of sexual innuendos with a chocolate covered spoon, or about to split the seams and spill suggestively out of her skirt, she apparently spends her time being strangled by a Saatchi and sniffing little white lines from those real marble surfaces in her SW3 home.

When Did 'Gay' Become a Dirty Word?
Apparently I should be furious with Alec Baldwin, Eminem and (if I even knew who he was) James Arthur.

Marks & Spencer, Muslims and a Matter of Taste
Marks & Spencer, that great old bastion of Britishness.
The place where you could go for a pork pie, a prawn sandwich, a bottle of Prosecco and a pair of tights.
A store so vanilla, user friendly and middle of the road that you could patiently wait in line to hand over your money and leave, happy in the knowledge that your purchases haven't caused religious upset or created intolerance. Except that doesn't seem to be the case anymore.

How (Not) to Behave On a First Date
I’ve come to the realization that the reason I am single and unemployable is because I treat every date like a second job interview and every job interview like a first date.
