Hi, my name is...

As you may have gathered, my name's Angus Batey, and I'm a journalist. I've been writing professionally since 1988, sometimes as a member of staff, sometimes in my spare time around non-journalism jobs, and since 2000 I've been a full-time freelance. I write about things I find interesting and on which I feel I have something to say. For most of my career I've written about music - particularly hip hop, though by no means only that - but in recent years an increasing majority of my work has been on aerospace, defence and security topics. I've also written about football, cricket, politics, race, TV, film and books.

My work has appeared in a wide variety of newspapers, websites and magazines, mainly published in the UK and the USA, and I've also had pieces run in titles from Sweden, the Netherlands, South Africa, the United Arab Emirates and Australia. I've written one book and contributed to several others, and I have also taught a unit on a degree course at the London South Bank University.

I'm always keen to add to my current client list, so if you're a commissioning editor and are interested in me writing something for you, please use the form below and I'll get back to you as soon as I'm able. Similarly, if you're interested in syndicating something of mine, please drop me a line.

If you've got a comment to make about one of my blog posts I'd appreciate it if you could leave it under the piece, but if there's anything else you'd like to ask, please get in touch using the form below. I'm particularly keen to hear from potential new clients or from PR people with ideas to pitch; but I welcome all feedback on the site or on my work in general, and will do my best to reply as soon as possible.
