Here’s a Q&A I conducted with boxing promoter, Sam Kynoch, for Boxing News online.
During my final year at Edinburgh University, I undertook a role with the University television channel as their Sports Producer. Here is a selection of videos we released during my tenure.
This video isn’t perfect but I learnt a lot from producing it and it was popular on Facebook at the time of release. Last minute pull-outs from crew members meant I directed, filmed, interviewed and edited with no assistance. That was really useful in helping me get to grips with editing software and every stage of the production process.

Here’s a piece I wrote for Debut. They’re a site all about careers with their own app for graduates to find jobs. This piece is a discussion of army careers for grads.
Here’s a selection of pieces I wrote for Hellraiser Boxing, the website of prominent London boxing promoter, Micky Helliet.
I’ve written a variety of pieces for the UK’s biggest boxing publication, Boxing News. I’ve covered shows for their print magazine and written online too. Here is a selection of articles about Scottish boxing written for Boxing News online.
No one was backing Tony Bellew before his first fight with David Haye but I was confident that the bookmakers had got it wrong. I wrote this piece on Bellew’s chances and am proud, in retrospect, that I went against the tide of Haye support to write the piece.
Sure, I’ve got plenty of predictions wrong too, like any sports writer. (I recently thought Frankie Gavin might have half a chance for the European title and that was, admittedly, a terrible call!) This is a well reasoned, well-researched prediction that I’m proud of though.

Here are two pieces I wrote on bare-knuckle boxing following a chat with promoter, Jim Freeman. It’s a growth sport and Jim made interesting comments on both gloved and bare-knuckle boxing.
Reviewing Beat Herder 2017 in the Ribble Valley was a fantastic experience. It was the first time I covered such a large and varied event too, making it a valuable learning experience. I produced several articles on the event, covering the festival as a whole and individual acts. Find them below…
I’ve always enjoyed contributing to The National Student (TNS). Having been both their sports and tech editor, at different stages, I have a lot of experience of working alongside the TNS team and catering to their readership. The fantastic thing about writing for TNS was the wide variety of opportunities to write on different subjects.
I’ve written for TNS on everything from Buddhist robots to golf, via a live review of rap pioneers, The Sugarhill Gang. It’s made me a better writer and, importantly, a more flexible writer. Here is a selection of pieces on varying subjects that I have written for TNS…
