I started out at the Daily Express in 1993. I was their first graduate trainee and went round every department, from law to news to diary.

I was a football reporter with them for two amazing years – covering Arsene Wenger’s arrival at Arsenal, Northern Ireland’s international qualifiers, and hundreds of training ground Fridays and Saturday and mid-week match reports, up to Euro ’96. I then went back to showbiz, writing news, features and a music column until, in 1997, they asked me to fill in for a couple of weeks as film critic. 

It’s been that way ever since, going freelance and writing reviews for the Mail on Sunday and features, reviews and the legendary Trailer Trash column for the Observer every week, for the next 20 years. 

I’ve written for The Times, The Sunday Times, the Jewish Chronicle, Jewish Renaissance, The Financial Times, Red Magazine, The Lady, Elle, and Virgin Atlantic’s in-flight Vera magazine.

I’m now to be found writing at The New European and SAGA magazine.

Here are a some pieces:
