After more than 20 years as a legal journalist and publisher, I left my job in 2014 to travel a bit, spend time with family and friends, and qualify as a ski instructor. Starting this website was a way of sharing travel impressions with friends while on the road.
Two ski seasons later, my old magazine called me back. I had been working as a freelance journalist and enjoyed the relative freedom. But with a new crew on board and a new energy around the brand, I was happy to head the editorial team once again. Just one year later, however, the magazine, which had been the longest-running law journal in the UK, was closed down.
This was October 2017, and after a couple of months away finishing a renovation project in France and occasionally working as a ski instructor, it was back to being a freelance journalist. Until I got another call that summer, from a publisher keen on resurrecting the journal and inviting me to join him, which I did, on a part-time basis. We relaunched in January 2019 and are still going.
I have also embarked on a parallel career as a garden designer and started training with Capel Manor in September 2018. All being well I should qualify in two years.
The website now includes not only ski and travel stories but also some of my work as a legal journalist. If you would like to discuss any editorial or publishing project, ad hoc or on-going, please contact me on LinkedIn with your details and a brief description the project.
