So, I’m Alex. I’m a freelance writer and television critic based in London, where I’ve lived my entire life.
I first started blogging about television and film and similar in 2012, at the suggestion of my friend Rose; from 2012 to May 2018, this writing was hosted on a tumblr blog, but I’ve since moved over to wordpress, because that’s ostensibly a bit more professional. The majority but not the entirety of everything I’ve written since 2012 is still available on this website, mainly because I think the (very steep) learning curve you can observe is worth preserving.
In 2015, after three years of tumblr blogging, I was asked to start contributing to the Yahoo TV UK website; in late 2016, by which point I’d also started writing for Flickering Myth and CultBox, I was asked to start contributing to the Metro website. I have, as you might have guessed, been ridiculously lucky in my writing career.
That more or less brings us up to now! I’m still writing and still having a great time doing it (usually, but you know how it is). I’m always looking to write more stuff, so if you’ve got something you’d like to commission me to do, a project to discuss, or a job to offer me, please do get in touch.
I’ve written so many different variations of this basic spiel over the years, and I’m never exactly happy with it; it used to be styled as a Q&A with an imaginary person, an “infrequently asked questions” type thing. That was sort of funny. Anyway, if there’s anything you’d like to know but you don’t think I’ve covered, feel free to get in touch and ask, I suppose, and I’ll answer them periodically.
