About me...who else?! 

I started blogging in 2009 offering a review and my honest opinion of the gigs, theatre shows and films I have seen. By 2015 my blog was so popular, that I was a finalist in the Milton Keynes Digital Awards.  I was now reviewing for other online sites.  In 2016, I was approached to write a piece for a Bowie book and I collaborated on a Bowie play. I reviewed as press in several theatres and was a finalist once again, for the Milton Keynes Digital Awards 2016.  In 2017 I wrote for more online sites including Gig Junkies and We Are Cult.  I had a piece published in books, 'David Bowie - I was there' and 'My Bowie Story' and continued to review regularly at four theatres.

 

2018 took a slight detour.  I found myself in the USA for the first time in 14 years so I wrote about New York and Las Vegas from a tourist point of view.   I continued to review in theatres and did several amazing gigs for Gig Junkies including Billy Idol and Heaven 17.  2019 celebrated my 10-year anniversary of blogging and reviewing.  I had built a regular base of readers to my site and continued to get lovely feedback from many famous faces One of my 2019 highlights was Nile Rogers at Meltdown festival.  I also curated part an art exhibition at Ripley Arts Centre in Bromley for artist Sara Captain and I caught up with Lee Mead about Holby.

 

At the start of 2020, I had already reviewed some incredible shows, but then Covid 19 hit us and suddenly all theatres and venues went dark. No gig reviews. No theatre reviews.  I decided to write a blog 'Corona Virus Diary'.  I talked honestly about my thoughts and feelings. I gave a talk on ‘Bowie and blogging’ to an online audience and I was featured in a music video.  All whilst in lockdown.

 

2021 I was back out there reviewing. I saw The Human League and New Order and was back reviewing at my regular theatres. I continued my online blog which talks about my personal life as well as my views on the world.

2022 felt like old normal. I was back doing theatre shows and got to see some amazing shows including Footloose where Darren Day gave me video feedback. I got to see Les Mis twice more. I got to see fabulous shows I had not seen before including The Cher Show, Fisherman’s Friends, Waitresses and The Shawshank Redemption. I saw talks by Tim Peake, Baker and Harris, and saw some smaller gigs including Glenn Tilbrook from Squeeze. I thoroughly enjoyed interviewing Rob Rinder and Lesley Joseph and loved a proper panto season once more.
