Freelance profile

Thomas Cooper

A true all-rounder for the Twenty20 era with superb layout and design (Quark and InDesign), accurate copy editing and sparkling feature/news writing skills. I can get your print or web project moving (skilled in Drupal CMS) with some rapid copy at the top of the order, organise those tricky middle overs and bring home the results at the production end of the innings. I will work at home (Adobe CS4, PC) or in the Greater London area (Mac PC Linux no problem). Editor of PUSH Hockey and author of cycling guidebook Cycle Touring in Ireland (Cicerone Press 2010).

Extra information:

Where did I fit it all in: a 15-year career as a IT consultant, paddling a sea kayak solo around the Great Sandy Strait (Queensland, Australia), being a general reporter for local newspapers in both England and Australia, even learning Pitman New Era shorthand somewhere along the way?

In the past few years I have cycled around Ireland (twice!) writing and photographing a 60,000-word guidebook (Cycle Touring in Ireland, Cicerone Press, 2010) as well as covering the Hockey World Cup from New Delhi for Push magazine and the web (see - I developed the website too, from scratch, and Tweeted every game, goal by goal)

At the same time I've been editing and producing the UK's only national hockey magazine Push ( on an absolute shoestring. Organising contributors, picture editing, producing illustrations, graphs, feature writing, product testing - I've done it all. So if you are a small magazine publisher looking for that rare combination of flair, hard-work and organisation, I could be just what you are after.
