About Julian Goode - a media expert with 30 years working in journalism and the digital industry
Based in Brentwood in Essex just east of the M25, I have three decades of experience providing written services to the media industry.
And producing written words for publication online or offline; as articles for traditional media - newspapers, magazines and newsletters - as short stories and other creative formats; as well as for publication on websites, social media channels, and in email newsletters.

From 2015-2019 I ran a successful media consultancy, providing a wide range of services building on my journalistic and digital media experience.
That recent work included:
> social media management and digital projects for various small businesses in Brentwood, Billericay, Hornchurch and surrounding areas in Essex
> freelance journalism for the Financial Times and Essex Life magazine
> consultancy in the UK horseracing industry and University sector
> digital marketing for Brentwood Chamber of Commerce
A bit more about me
I grew up in West Sussex, and began my career in local newspapers in my hometown, Horsham, after graduating from the University of Hull with a degree in Law and Politics.
Working in sports journalism for further papers in Manchester and Bath, I then moved to national news agency UK News, where I progressed to become one of their senior correspondents and England football reporter, and then anchored their sports desk as News Editor.
From there I jumped into the emerging world of new media in the late 1990s, as launch Editor for the joint website of the England and Wales Cricket Board and the Marylebone Cricket Club at Lord's Cricket Ground - going on to work solely for the ECB as their Head of New Media up until 2015.
I'm a big sports fan, and lifelong Brighton and Hove Albion supporter; and when not spending time with my family I also enjoy walking and mountain climbing, writing, scriptwriting, crime fiction, television drama and radio.
