Deejaying and Mixing Music How to Draw Comics - the web supplement My life in publishing Web consultancy services
My working career began in magazines when, straight out of college, I was offered a job at Top Sellers in Wardour Street by my friend Dez Skinn.
Dez, an ex-IPC editor, was at the time creator and editor of a House of Hammer. It was while at Top Sellers that I met the people who were to be the biggest influences on my working life, including Alan Jones, Tony Crawley, Phil Edwards and Steve Parkhouse.
I then went on to work on Starburst magazine, at Marvel Comics UK alongside Richard Burton.
Richard and I were to work together again a couple of years later on 2000AD and after that on Fun Online.
Fun Online led to At Home with Your PC, which led to me becoming involved in the web, which led me to the BBC and the joys of corporate IT departments ...
It's been an interesting journey.
