Hi! I write really, really good stuff. So good that I think it's worth paying for. Trouble is, journalism sucks right now. Aside from being the absolute pits in terms of commentary and critique, and just institutionally being Quite Shit, the business models of journalism are failing. Clickbait and intentionally rage-inducing content is created solely to sustain the relevance of media's old dogs.

Journalism is also one of the most socially exclusive professions in the UK, fundamentally failing to represent its audience across lines of race, gender, and class. As a working class Northern kid working a part-time job for every available shift since I was 16, plunging myself into more than £50k of student debt in the vain hope of a journalism job with little to no security and woeful pay was, without a shadow of a doubt, a stupid decision.

I'm still good at it though, and if I can't write for The Times or The Guardian, I can write for you. Independently, openly, and interactively. Support me, and you'll receive regular columns from me on - honestly - anything I fancy. You'll also be able to talk to me about stuff you'd like to see me cover.

This next bit is only for the Brands: Pay me to shill your product! Do it!
