Work in progress:
Clear Bright Future: A radical defence of the human being (Allen Lane 2019)
Speaking and writing:
I am represented by literary agent Matthew Hamilton at Aitken Alexander for fiction, nonfiction, stage and screen. For public speaking I am represented by a small number of specialist agencies (click below).
I'm a journalist, author and film-maker. After 15 years in broadcast news I just decided to tell it straight.
In April 2016 I went freelance. I was consultant, main unit on the Paul Greengrass movie Jason Bourne (2016). I made my directing debut in the short fictional movie Astoria (2016). My play Divine Chaos of Starry Things was staged at the White Bear Theatre 2017). I devised and presented the televised stage work Why It's Kicking Off Everywhere at the Young Vic Theatre 2017. I have made regular appearances on TV and radio as an analyst and commentator focusing on Trump, Brexit, the Corbyn phenomenon and the economics of social justice.
My next project is a book called Clear Bright Future, which is a defence of radical humanism in the face of artificial intelligence and algorithmic control. It is due out early in 2019.
