Passions Just Like Mine is essentially a portfolio of all my written work. I am a freelance writer dealing with politics, music, tennis and football.

My interest in writing started during my undergraduate days when I would write for Student Direct, the largest student newspaper in the UK, and High Voltage, a small, independent music publication based in Manchester. I enjoyed the art of writing; trying to make clear my views in as interesting way as possible for others to read. This blog was set up as a place to host all of my work and to this day it serves that purpose.

Having graduated from the University of Manchester in 2011 with an MA in Linguistics, I decided to pursue writing more aggressively. I interned at the New Statesman for 3 months where I got to grips with how a fast paced news desk at a national title works. I had over 40 business and politics articles published during that time and left Fleet Street a better writer and determined to one day return.

Since arriving back at my humble South Manchester abode, I have been approached to write for a new football website, By Far the Greatest Team, and began writing about tennis for the Huffington Post. I have also launched my own website dedicated to Manchester City.
