Hello, I’m Roy, a writer and all-round creative media professional, with a background in technology and heritage, and experience of radio and film production.
As an author and creative writer, I write original fiction in all formats including novels and short stories, TV and film scripts, game backstory, game dialogue, and interactive fiction.
As a journalist, I have been a columnist, covering the pop culture and technology beat, for national and regional newspapers and glossies, and online publications.
Given my content creation skills and IT background, my services are also available as a copywriter, website content writer and editor, technical author, and web UX tester.
Since 2012 I have been a podcast producer and presenter. My weekly pop culture and technology show is a topical and entertaining mixture of news and opinion.
Since 2012 I have been a freelance writer, working for both traditional print and digital media.
After discovering consoles and programming on the Commodore 64 as a child, I went on to attain a business, science, and technology based higher and postgraduate education.
In my prior IT career, I worked my way up from first line support technician, to developer, analyst, project manager, and consultant ETL expert; gluing complex backends together. I delivered technical solutions to blue-chip companies, governments, public bodies, and SMEs on three continents and interacted at board level on projects with budgets exceeding £3M.
