Born in September 1995 in a sleepy English town, I guess it’s easy to see why Formula One captured my attention from such an early age. The money, the glamour and the elitism of this, albeit, slightly crazy sport transported me away from my dull surroundings.
Every Sunday lunchtime, I thanked my father for introducing me to Formula One from such an early age. Some of my fondest memories involve gathering around the television with our roast dinner to scream and shout at speeding cars located around the world.
Then, in 2009, along came the dominant Brawn GP with Button and Barichello behind the wheel of the white and green speed machine. Bang. The obsession started.
As the years went on, my love of motorsport widened to incorporate MotoGP, then BTCC, the Isle of Man TT and more recently, Formula E. Now, anything with speed and wheels is exactly my cup of tea.
My first experience of motorsport journalism came when I joined Overtake Motorsport who, despite my non-existent experience, brought me on board as their Formula E correspondent in 2017. Quickly finding my feet in this new world, I was promoted to Assistant Manager of the site and my responsibilities suddenly expanded past reporting and writing.
Eager for more autonomy and creative freedom, I felt the time was right to break away and build my own website. Joining two close friends, we co-founded our own platform dedicate to two-wheeled racing. Now Moto was suddenly born!
Building, from the ground up, a successful, dedicated and passionate team of 8 writers, our little website grew more rapidly than we could have imagined, hitting 12k views within the first six months.
I was then invited to rejoin Overtake Motorsport when the position of Editor-In-Chief was available, and I spearheaded a team of 11 immensely talented and motivated junior writers – the next generation of Team Principles and PR officers!
As Overtake Motorsport was focusing on four-wheeled racing, my two-wheeled fix was filled by a new role with The Checkered Flag. In 2019, the team offered me the role of MotoGP Editor and I simply couldn’t say no! Their site is well renowned and highly regarded for producing talented writers.
After a break from writing, the bug returned, and I joined The Pit Crew Online to cover Formula E in 2021. Now, writing continues to be my “side hustle” as I build a career in recruitment.
So, all that’s left for me to say is thank you for visiting my site and taking the time to read my posts! I hope you enjoy it and feel free to leave me feedback or contact me.
