I am a freelance journalist, and a contributing writer to MakeUseOf, Small Business Trends, and occasionally NowSourcing.


I have also done past guest blogging for PC World, GeeksAreSexy, Search Engine News, Google Tutor, and eCommerceBytes (formerly Auctionbytes), amongst others. For 6 years (2007-2013), I was the Managing Editor of MakeUseOf.


I have done business consulting for e-commerce companies with links to eBay, including Nabit, which has made a desktop bidding application. I translated their software into German and wrote their user manual. I also have past experience with BBC television, BBC radio, Scottish youth radio and Scottish newspapers.


Originally from Scotland, with job experiences as diverse as debt collection clerk, Dutch bulb packer, government civil servant and English language tutor, I now live in Würzburg, Germany, with my wife Monika, and my crazy but lovable dog, Schlumpf.
