Press

As well as blogging at Much More with Less, I write about money in my day job as a freelance personal finance journalist.

I’ve written for a wide variety of newspapers, websites, companies and charities, whether it’s articles, guides, opinion pieces, guest blog posts or sponsored editorial.

Publications range from The Sunday Times and Mirror Online to the Money Advice Service, Red, Good Housekeeping and Woman & Home.
