I write about beer, beer history, horse racing and (very occasionally) other exciting and totally-not-arcane topics. I don’t do it for free (beyond my own blogs – I got sick of doing The Examiner as the time vs pay calculation wasn’t great there) unless it’s a Very Special Favor, but you are, of course, most welcome to read for free. I’m usually too busy to take on more writing (which I can make ludicriously SEO-friendly when desired), but if you’ve got something that sounds like it might be a good fit, don’t hesitate to get in touch. Alternatively, read an interview with me (unless you prefer something more audiovisual – that’s here, too, or a much older one here), then let’s chat!

Finally, if you enjoy nostalgia, you can check out reviews and other articles and reviews I wrote for Women.com, back in the day (when I wasn’t busy coding and/or managing the usual dot-com emergencies common to that era).
And here are a few freelance ideas I would not turn down, provided I got a nice travel stipend and/or freebies for testing purposes (where applicable):
- An exploration of what beers are available in Britain’s extant coaching inns
- Which international soccer stadiums have the best beer selections?
- An in-depth history of brewing in Australia and New Zealand
- Why are Moving Comfort sports bras just so fantastic?
- How does Seattle Beer Week compare to Philly Beer Week?
- An American guide to the Melbourne Cup
- Navigating Comic-Con with a smallish child
- Wouldn’t it be fun to compare GABF and NZBF visits? You know it would.
Just a few examples to get you thinking…
