I love magazines and I love football, so it was apt that my career as a writer began in 1994 on iconic football weekly 90 Minutes. In my first year I won IPC's 'Best Newcomer' award and after that there was no stopping me.
Three years later I ended up at Loaded covering football and Formula One, mainly because I knew more about sport than any of the blokes in the office did. I spent the best part of a year following Damon Hill around Grand Prix circuits and even made an exhaust for his car. There followed a football column in The Guardian Sport along with features for FourFourTwo and Goal before branching out into lifestyle/celebrity features for The Guardian Guide, Company, 19, Q, Marie Claire, Minx, Mixmag, Melody Maker and some other publications which didn't start with the letter 'm'. Favourite interviews include Frank Lampard, The Spice Girls, Barry White and, of course, Damon Hill. It's been a mixed bag, to say the least. I was even an agony aunt at one point.
After being out of the loop for some time due to serious illness, I'm now back writing lifestyle and health features
for The Daily Telegraph, Balance, Prima, The Guardian and YOU magazine.
