I wrote this week's music column for the Guardian Guide, on Island Records' new disquieting pop sensation, Petite Meller. Read the piece here, and enjoy the video here.
I was a guest on the main morning show, WEEKEND, chatting about the week's current affairs and culture stories alongside Lindsey Hilsum from Channel 4 News. Show archived, here.
I worked on a series of video tutorials for the D&D restaurant group, based around the Bluebird restaurant in Chelsea, producing the narrative and conducting off-camera interviews as part of their youtube tutorial series. See the end result here.
I edited and copywrote the beautiful Aficionados newspaper for White Line Hotels this month. Available through their collection of independent design hotels Europe-wide. See more about them, here.

My long feature/interview with Jason Becker appeared on Red Bull's site. Becker was the teen heavy metal prodigy who was struck down by ALS (a kind of muscular dystrophy) in his early twenties and despite paralysis and the other constraints of the disease, has continued to make music. Read the piece here.
My long feature on the four year quest to redesign, rebuild and eventually dredge up the long lost Doves Type was in the Sunday Times magazine in January. Visit Typespec for more information and to buy the font, and read the story behind the Times' paywall for £1 here.
