Portfolio of recent writing work
My portfolio of recent writing work includes magazine articles and interviews, e-books, and corporate white papers.
I am currently the editor for the Australian monthly B2B magazine Process Technology (Westwick-Farrow Media Pty Ltd), and its associated website, processonline.com.au. As editor of this well-respected magazine for the processing and manufacturing industries in Australia and New Zealand, I manage the delivery of all editorial content, much of which is contributed by industry experts and journalists, and some of which I write myself. I also occasionally write for other magazines published by Westwick-Farrow.
In recent years I have been writing content marketing materials for companies mainly in the fields of industrial automation and process control, mining technology, and information technology. As an engineer and former IT industry, with a background in both the physical and social sciences, I can provide writing expertise on almost any subject.
Below are some samples of my work, which can be searched by type of content and industry.
