Writing

Hire me to write

I research, write, and publish extensively on a range of digital law issues impacting the web design and development professions. I also write articles, white papers, and reports by request for businesses, media outlets, and blogs.

Recent one-off articles include work for A List Apart, Smashing Magazine, and 24Ways, in addition to commissions for private businesses. I also am open to regular gigs and columns.

I blog regularly on digital law issues. In 2015 a post was chosen for WordPress’s high-profile Freshly Pressed showcase, while another post on VATMOSS saw nearly 35,000 viral visits in two days.
