About Me

I’m Baz, a versatile professional writer and editor. That chubby-cheeked chap on the left is me. I was forged in coastal Northern Ireland, tempered on the alcohol-soaked streets of Glasgow, then plunged into the subtropical heat of Brisbane.

I’ve been writing for about a decade, and my areas of special interest include the arts, feature writing, film reviewing, humour, travel writing, pop culture and screenwriting.

I’m currently employed as a senior production journalist at a major metro newspaper and have won awards for my writing, my screenwriting, and my headlines.

    Hi Baz,

    What about ya! As a fellow Ulster-Scot living in Brisbane, I have been following your newspaper articles recently with interest. I too have been concerned about where the wee country (Norn Iron) would stand if the “Yes” vote was to get through. Can’t wait to be put out of my misery later today. Fingers crossed the “No” vote and good sense prevails!

    Kind regards,
