Other information: I have been writing for the past six years as a correspondent for Renewable Energy Magazine, covering news articles, conducting interviews and writing the occasional blog.

Additionally, I have written topical opinion pieces for Interesting Engineering and Solar Thermal Magazine, thus my primary interest is in clean energy and climate change and I consider myself to be fairly well acquainted with this sector, across all the main technologies (including green motoring, green building and energy efficiency) and including discussions around the political and regulatory environment, the economics of clean energy and on a social discussion/marketing and PR basis as well.

I would like to expand my writing in this area beyond Renewable Energy Magazine and so I believe my skills and knowledge in this area would be of interest to any publication/website etc with an interest in or relevant to clean energy.

Furthermore, I am also trying to broaden my interest, knowledge and experience in the transport sector, particularly with regard to rail and public transport (the bus and coach sector), as well as the general dynamics around transport planning etc.

Other subjects of interest range from historical topics to psychology, spirituality, literature and culture, mythology, art and so on. I am particularly interested in the two world wars, military history in general and movies and books covering military subjects.

Alongside more conventional industry articles of the kind you can see via my links below, I would like to be engaged in writing blogs, columns or other opinion pieces for mainstream political, business or lifestyle magazines and websites, covering my specialist areas of interest you can see listed here and adding to the general debate in the public arena on a range of topics.
