I’m a online reporter / producer at Channel 4 News.
At The Register – the UK’s biggest tech site – I scooped the tech problems behind the RBS/Natwest banking software glitch that affected 17 million people, tracing the technical flaw behind the crash and linking it to wider practices at the bank. I wound up with an appearance on Sky News and Channel 4 news, and references in The Daily Mail, Sun and Telegraph.
I used to be the editor of tech website ShinyShiny. A scoop there that got picked up by New York Magazine, the Guardian and Gawker was about Apple forcing magazines to censor their fashion editorial for the iPad editions. I’ve also been technology editor on Anorak.co.uk, and have worked for Time Out Travel, the BBC homepage and Diva Magazine.
Before all that, I wrote content about dogs for a social network for dog-owners. It was called “facedog” and has sadly been removed from the internet.
I was the editor and co-founder of TheMostCake
This is my contribution to the Northern Irish peace process.
