I joined Spear’s, the wealth management, business and culture magazine, in 2008, first as senior editor then (from 2010-2015) as editor. I was nominated as Editor of the Year at the British Society of Magazine Editors in 2011 and 2012.

You can see a complete archive of my work here but I’m also gradually putting new and archive pieces up on this website.

Here is a sample (by the time I’d finished) semi-exhaustive archive of what I’ve written for Spear’s, with lots on art but also philanthropy and entrepreneurs (often at the same time):
