I’m currently working on my first book.
At school and university, I wrote music reviews, interviews and articles for student publications. Since then I have continued to freelance for a number of online and off-line publications.
In addition, I write press releases for independent up and coming artists as well as music companies. Here is a sample: franzjobpr.pdf
I founded and edited an online news and information website called Verse Online for urban music industry professionals in the UK.
