Based out of London, I began freelance writing for the UK section of GamblingSites.org in October of 2019. Having worked in the gambling industry for almost 10 years, I now have the pleasure of adding this site to my list of accomplishments as a casino writer.
I was born in Brighton in the winter of 1984 and studied Economics at Merton College, Oxford. Writing wasn’t something that came naturally to me at first, but I’ve always enjoyed the casino. Previously, I worked as a Promotions and Casino Manager for a boutique gaming operator in London. This is where I learned more about the gaming sector and the growth of the online betting (iGaming) industry.
I started blogging shortly after that position and have enjoyed writing ever since. Online, I found a community of people who enjoyed what I enjoyed:
In my spare time, I enjoy being at home with my wife Elaine, our daughter Emilia, and our British Shorthair, Morrie. When I’m not with my family, I spend some afternoons playing video poker and keeping up with the latest news. Apart from gaming, I have always loved music and have been playing the saxophone since I was a teenager.
Through this site, I’d like to cover the best of the gambling industry as it continues to evolve today.
