Publication Portfolio


I am an historian at heart and at one point seriously considered becoming an archaeologist.

For twelve years of my life however, I followed my penchant for travel in a more formal corporate environment. Today my vocation is determined by my various interests.

Automobiles are one of my greatest passions, I am an absolute BMW fanatic, but that is not to say I don’t have an appreciation for other marques, on the contrary. I however am a true devotee of the classics.

In 2012 my life was irrevocably changed…the day I decided to write my first BMW story. A story I vehemently felt needed to be told; shared with the rest of the world. I was neither a journalist nor was I paid by BMW Car magazine. But it was a BMW I had been in love with for most of my life, and knew that if I wrote the story of the little 2002 that even if I did not own it, that at least I would be part of its journey.

Today half my time is devoted to writing about classic and collectable cars not only for BMW Car, but several UK publications, see the complete listing on the website. The other half of my time is spent creating bespoke motor books and capturing automotive icons, see our Vantage Fine Automotive Art page.
