Robert has been writing articles, blog posts and how-to articles on several subjects for many years. Robert maintains an ongoing blog which is dedicated to covering pop culture (primarily, but not exclusively, cinema and television), politics, environmental issues and technical know-how. This has grown out of a lifelong love of all things media related, and general fandom and personal investment have developed into skilled writing and incisive text, all with a distinct, entertaining and accessible style. Robert is an English graduate (BA Hons) and so has the academic background to supplement his experience of writing. He is also responsible for producing training materials and how-to guides in his professional life and so is capable of writing in the formal style of presentational documents as well as a more relaxed style for article writing.
