I currently work for Progressive Digital Media as a deputy editor on a range of their business-to-business digital magazines and have been involved in launching a new consumer magazine.
I have been involved with the launch of Factor Magazine – a science, innovation and technology website and digital magazine. The website covers a broad range of issues from the emerging technology world and asks what the future will be like tomorrow?
This has involved producing stories using data, exclusive interviews, video pieces, list-style pieces, product reviews and the latest news from around the world.
The iPad magazine, which launched in June 2014, is a monthly title featuring exclusive content.
Here are some of the articles I have written for Factor:
