Hello and welcome to my Writers and Design Portfolio. Along with my stories I have produced and written a number of gaming related articles for the Games Workshop White Dwarf Hobby magazines. I’ve also had work published on the Games Workshop website, in their gaming products and in the independent Undefeated Gaming Magazine.
A Collection of Work
Featured below is a collection of my work, it’s far from complete, and I will be adding to it over time as I locate articles from White Dwarf and other publications.
All page design, content and photographs were produced by myself from a product brief with the stakeholder, and then placed into standard layouts or worked up from a blank template. Included below are examples of my writing and design style.

Over Twenty Years of Experience
I have more than two decades of experience in writing to build brands and content creation about gaming, specifically working with Games Workshop, their line of Citadel Miniatures and tabletop combat games.
I have over thirty years experience in content creation, management and design. I am able to provide and manage engaging content for multiple audiences and subjects. Including sportswear, construction equipment, mission critical power systems and governmental policy.
Grow and Develop a Customer Experience
A major part of my work was to help develop, grow and nurture customer bases, this was done using building brand authority, from how to articles to industry news. For example, for Games workshop, you talk about the hobby experience via writing and producing content about the product, the customers and how you can enter the hobby.
I believe strongly in teamwork with strong interpersonal skills, proven work ethic, and long experience within the gaming, toy and publishing industries, with a proven track record of increasing product awareness.
Available for Contract Work
I am available for freelance article and magazine writing for advertorial, rules, feature, support or hobby-based article writing. If you are interested in hiring me for any writing assignments or events please contact me here and we can discuss the project.
