BYRONIK.COM editorial services for print, Web, or other media
The BYRONIK.COM Web site has been my portfolio for more than 12 years. I still code all the html by hand using Notepad. Please feel free to snoop around. Maybe there's some small way we can do each other some good.
I trained at London's leading journalism school when it was still called the London College of Printing. Now it is called London College of Communications and is part of the University of the Arts London. Since I graduated, I've spent most of my working life in California newspapers, running a newsroom, solving reporters' problems and editing their copy into AP style.
When Linda Townson fired me from The Star-News in 2004, my career as a newspaper editor was chilled to a standstill, as every potential employer goes to her for a reference. In effect, I’ve been blacklisted. Now I operate as a self-employed editorial consultant assisting reporters in the spotting and shaping of stories.
