In other writing forms, in 2013 Chris was shortlisted for the 30-hour novel prize by the HarperCollins authonomy community. Chris’s entry, In Flight, was for a competition hosted by Kernel magazine to produce an entire novel from scratch over the course of a single weekend.

This site contains most of my published journalism since January 2008, and selected earlier articles. This site does not include large research reports for groups like Cerulli, which are sold individually – they can be accessed through www.cerulli.com. Some publications do not allow the full version of their articles to be printed on other sites; in those cases I have provided the first few paragraphs. Please contact me or the magazine if you wish to see more.

In most cases, the text on this site is as originally filed, which may differ from the published version. In many instances a link is provided to the published text, although for some publications you may need a password to access this text.
