About

Hello. I’m a freelance journalist based in Glasgow. I have written for titles including The Guardian, Sunday Times, The Times, The Big Issue, Sunday Herald, and Scotland On Sunday.

I’m a six times winner at the Scottish Press Awards and a recent shortlisted nominee for the Orwell journalism prize.

This website is intended to be an archive of some of my best work that, mostly, has not been collected in the anthology Daunderlust – Dispatches From Unreported Scotland. Val McDermid reckons that book should be parachute-dropped over England, like the Berlin airlift. But if you would rather just buy it, please click on the cover below. An audio version, voiced by Robbie Coltrane, is also available.
