I maintain Story Issues, a website about the stories we love and how they're told.

Support the site via Patreon if you like it.

Previously, I have been published on a range of websites: Birth.Movies.Death (where I was Gaming Editor and a senior contributor), IGN, Polygon, VICE, SlashFilm, The Spinoff, Gameplanet, FirstPost, The Bite, DreadCentral, and more.
