Just Who Is Stuart Pritchard?

Raiding Lost Arks, or something, on a press trip in Egypt.

Hello you. I’m Stuart Pritchard, 38 and 6’3″ tall at the time of writing this in 2011. Today, in 2016, I’m 41, pushing 42, yet my height remains unnervingly the same. I’m what we like to call a freelance journalist – technically a journalist without a proper job. I’ve worked in publishing for donkey’s years (like Earth years but with added ass), mostly in the lifestyle magazine market and mainly as the Editor-in-Chief of the luxury lifestyle title SmartLife International (2010 ABC certified as amongst the 19 top-selling UK men’s magazines, and which you’ll no doubt have been a massive fan of if you’re over-blessed with money).

Alongside launching and editing SmartLife for 11 years, I also launched and simul-ran SVI (Sound Vision Install), the AV trade’s premier magazine, and edited the pub trade magazine Freehouse Owner for a couple of years, all whilst freelancing for a broad range of magazines on many different subjects. Mostly gadgets.

You’ll find examples of my work everywhere from the swankiest hotels to on the  interweb to left discarded under bushes in the local woods. In fact it can be truly said that my words are scattered like the breadcrumbs of Hansel and Gretel after some savage bread-based forest storm.

Since stumbling chaotically into the realm of full-time freelance in May of 2011 like a drunk into a kebab house, I’ve written for and edited a variety of websites and spent a brief stint as Freelance Editor of Meze, another luxury lifestyle magazine. I also found time to become a father, because you can never have enough stress in your life.
