The Big Issue North is a regional edition to the popular weekly publication, The Big Issue. I've been contributing multi-page features to the magazine since early 2017. Scroll down for more...
Cover Story: Seth Rogen
I had so much spare content left over from my chat with Seth Rogen that I was able to put together a completely new piece featuring new quotes for the regional readers of The Big Issue North. This time, Seth shared thoughts on his collaborative style and fondness for working with his friends...
Cover Story: Paddy Considine
Directing/acting powerhouse Paddy Considine followed up his harrowing debut Tyrannosaur with the equally unflinching boxing drama Journeyman. I spoke to him as the film was hitting audiences to find out what inspires his storytelling. The feature was a cover story in the magazine's print edition but you can read the piece online by clicking the image below.
Cover Story: Bill Bailey
A few weeks after The Big Issue published my mini-Bill Bailey piece online, the comedian visited Manchester Apollo and my main cover story interview was published. In it Bill discusses his love of travelling, left-field comedic style and his (not so) rock and roll tour antics.
Bill Bailey's Philosophy of Funny
I spoke to comedian Bill Bailey shortly before he hit the road on his 2018 Larks in Transit tour. I got so much great content that I pitched a mini-feature for the publication's online section highlighting Bill's laid back philosophies on travel, comedy and life.

Rupert Grint on Snatch
After I'd quizzed Rupert Grint about his favourite movies for Total Film, there was a little bit of time left over to get his thoughts on visiting Manchester for the first time ever to shoot his new show Snatch.
Julian Barratt on Mindhorn
While his Mighty Boosh partner Noel Fielding was visiting The Great British Bake Off's baking tent, Julian Barratt was making his big screen feature debut with Mindhorn, a smart send up of 80s cop shows and the fickle nature of fame. I spoke to Barratt about creating this larger than life character just before the film's debut.
Artist John Higgins on Judge Dredd
I was offered the chance to speak to iconic Liverpool based artist and comic book writer John Higgins ahead of his hometown exhibition at Victoria Gallery & Museum and as a big fan of Judge Dredd and Watchmen, I jumped at the chance.
Alice Lowe Talks Prevenge
For my inaugural feature for The Big Issue North I spoke to actor, writer and Director Alice Lowe about her amazing feature debut Prevenge and its impressive journey to the screen.
