Jonny Evans

Word-miner, music lover, over-enthusiastic thrill-seeker

I've been writing all my life, professionally since the early-90's when I wrote about music, because I love music.
(I love music so much I ended up working with bands before I became a writer, I was a manager, promoter, DJ, merchandiser, security guard and caterer. I still love live music, from Giant Sand to Motorhead to Skrillix).

Writing about music in the decade of the desktop publishing revolution led me to get a Mac. When I did I got interested in the Mac as a tool for creative people. That interest led me to become the News Editor at Macworld in the UK (online and print), a post I held for almost a decade.

Since going freelance I've written in the US and the UK. I write a daily Apple blog over at Computerworld in the US (it's great, do visit). I've also written for Macworld, Wired, MacFormat, iCreate, PC Advisor, Digital Living, iPod User, Vanilla Plus, Guardian, Observer, Mail, and a few others. I'll even write for you, so if you need some words mined feel free to drop me a line to talk about it.
