About me...who else?! 

I started blogging in 2009. I went to the cinema and friends would ask what I thought of the film. Rather than repeat myself I decided to write a blog offering a review of the film. It was good to share my opinion and was appreciated by my friends.  I expanded from film reviews to gigs and theatre shows that I had been to. I gave an honest review.  This was not to criticise; as I consider myself a reviewer rather than a critic, but to let people know as a friend would, if the show or gig was worth seeing.  Little did I know that by 2015 my blog would become so popular that I was nominated as a finalist in the Milton Keynes Digital Awards. I was now reviewing not only for my own blog, but for other sites too.  I became the main theatre reviewer for the About Milton Keynes Website and was also writing for an electronic music website. 

​In 2016, I was approached to write a piece for a book and I collaborated on a play entitled ‘Can you hear me, Major Tom?’, both of which are about David Bowie. I reviewed at several theatres and was nominated as a finalist once again, for the Milton Keynes Digital Awards 2016 in the Entertainment Blog category.  I had international recognition including from Tony Visconti (David Bowie’s producer) and my review of ‘Freddie Burretti – The man who sewed the world’ was sent to Bowie’s people by the director/producer of the film.  The next step was to set up my own website, which I started building in October 2016. 2017 was a busy year. I got to see 'Can you hear me, Major Tom?' performed in front of a paying audience. I wrote for online sites, Gig Junkies and We Are Cult.  I wrote a piece for two published books, 'David Bowie - I was there' and 'My Bowie Story' and reviewed at four theatres.

2018 took a ​slight detour. I found myself in the USA for the first time in 14 years. It deserved a review. I wrote about New York and Las Vegas from a tourist point of view. I don’t see myself as a travel blogger but it was too good an opportunity to miss. I continued to regularly review in theatres and did several amazing gigs for Gig Junkies including Billy Idol and Heaven 17.

Who knows where the story leads next. Stay in touch to find out...As Bowie said, I don't know where I am going next, but it won't be boring!
