As a writer, his copy was always clean and clear, and I was often impressed by how quickly and fluidly he wrote. He can write opinion pieces just as well as news stories and his knowledge about the mortgage and property market is second to none. As an editor, he was fast, efficient and versatile, and because he doesn’t have an ego, he only improves copy, rather than over-editing where no changes are needed. I would highly recommend him to anyone he wants to work for and will always feel lucky and privileged I had the chance to work with him.

Ed Bowsher, deputy editor, Share Radio
I have worked with John both as a PR and as a journalist and in both milieus he is a consummate professional. His approach is intelligent and always sensitive to the reader or end objective of his client. He has a clear ability to tease a reader-friendly story out of a complex set of facts and most importantly he is reliable, accurate and succinct in his writing ability and has never let me down.
Sarah Davidson, mortgage reporter, This is Money/MailOnline
