Work experience

Owner of The Uncommon Octopus - a full service writing firm

Self-employed
January, 2008 – Present (over 10 years)

I am a bestselling author and have worked with some of the largest and most established publishing firms in the world, including Penguin, McGraw Hill, Wiley, and AMACOM. Over the last decade, I have ghostwritten, edited, and doctored a plethora of books on behalf of my clients, several of which have been published by major publishers and also become bestsellers.

I have lived and written throughout the world. I spent seven years as a wildlife photographer and writer in southern Africa, and after moving to London I spent two years writing daily financial analyses for a boutique investment firm. I also made appearances on Sky Business News and Reuters TV and conducted daily commentaries on Bloomberg News. I have also written three novels, countless short stories, and am a 2011 graduate of the Odyssey Writer’s Workshop.
