Martin is a wordsmith who contributes to national print and digital titles, senior editor at Design Exchange Magazine, DJ Magazine’s clubs editor, and a desk editor for UK press agency Free Features. When he’s not penning sentences for Smoking Gun’s acclaimed blog, that is.
With some eight years experience writing on music, food, travel, current affairs, the media, public relations and social media, and a previous life spent handling clients for Marks & Spencer, mumbling aside he understands how to communicate effectively in terms of both copy and conversations. Meanwhile, his desire to learn and master the latest and greatest trends impacting the industry makes him the perfect fit for this award-winning public relations agency.
Martin’s most captivating story is The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Aged 13 3/4. A far cry from his usual reading material, which largely consists of depressing foreign correspondences, this honest look at life as a teenager in the era before Britain went digital invokes memories of his own school days, and all the things he used to think about but was too nervous to let anyone know.
