Monthly columns and features

Having been in journalism for many years, I am now focusing on making face reading and acupuncture more accessible to the lay person. What better way to give you an insight into what you can discover from the face than by offering you a selection of my monthly columns in GQ, in which I face-read high-profile celebrities? Click on the images below to read each column and some of my latest features in the media, including some more light-hearted articles.

If you'd like to interview me or commission me to write a feature, or for hi-res images, please contact me.
