I'm a journalist for UK-based ArtsProfessional. I've been published in these places:
Article Title: Laws of Physics Behind a World Cup Football (above)
- Two page spread on the physics behind the World Cup football, the 'Brazuca', for the Observer Tech Monthly.
- My work was then incorporated into a larger article on the technology to be expected at the upcoming World Cup (here), for which I recieved an additional reporting credit, and reproduced as an interactive graphic (here)
- Interview with Sam Cusumano, the engineer behind US-based tech collective Data Garden and their product, 'MIDI Sprout' -- which, when plugged into vegetables and into synthesisers, creates beautiful sonic landscapes.

Article Title: Oloramar Wine
Date: June 2014 (Issue 74)
- A review of Galician vineyard Rias Baixas' new white wine, produced in conjunction with Spanish designers Oloramar. I recommended pairing it with seafood for a truly Galician experience.
I conducted a series of interviews for Monocle 24, the affiliated radio station, during my internship with Monocle -- discussing issues as diverse as whether or not Gatwick Airport should have a second runway, and whether or not 'Freemen of the City' can march sheep over London Bridge. Listen here
Oh, and finally: I also produced some blogs during the period which have been described (by loads of people, not just my family) as 'probably worth reading'. Check them here
