Experienced technology writer, editor and strategist
firstname.lastname@example.org / @dougdrinkwater1
My name is Doug and I am a technology journalist/editor/content strategist specialising in the area of emerging technologies. I have over ten years’ experience of working for a variety of technology, sport and news publications.
I am currently the Head of Publishing/Editor-in-Chief at Internet of Business - the home of Internet of Things news, research and events.
Previously, I was the Senior Reporter at SC Magazine, International Editor at technology news website TabTimes and News Editor for consumer electronics trade journal Display Monitor.
My freelance work has appeared in a number of respected technology titles including CIO.com, Computerworld, CSO, IBTimes, Macworld, Mashable, PCWorld and The Gadget Show Magazine.
I am available for freelance writing, editing, speaking and video presenting, assuming they fit my specialities of IoT, Big Data, Smart Home, Cyber Security and Digital Transformation.
In my career to date, I've broken numerous exclusive stories, penned almost every article type imaginable, and worked with an eclectic mix of content management systems. I’ve also gained a solid handle on SEO and HTML.
Writing isn't all I do, of course - I am regularly editing copy, checking web analytics and growing social media groups, and I have experience managing small editorial teams.
With my publisher 'hat' on, I can show examples of introducing new commercial products, launching and revising content strategies and forecasting budgets for the year ahead. At Internet of Business, I've also been behind everything from the original design to the first website redesign and event launch.
Furthermore, I regularly speak, moderate and chair live and virtual events, present professional videos, and I also have experience in producing industry-leading tech conferences.
In my spare time, you'll likely find me spending time with my family, failing miserably to play any number of sports, or at the pub.
I am available for freelance work in my spare-time (writing, editing, moderating, presenting). If you want to get in contact, please email me at email@example.com or contact me on Twitter.
