My portfolio #20: Reluctant musings on breasts for Cleo

You would imagine that being invited by one of the country’s premiere women’s magazines to write an opinion piece about why boobs are great must be among the greatest honours one could bestow upon a male journalist. But truthfully, I was a little uncomfortable with the notion, not least because I’m trying to avoid being typecast as “ex-FHM editor Guy Mosel”. Still, I think I managed to write something vaguely entertaining without coming off like a sniggering masturbator. Read it and let me know what you think. This appeared in Cleo‘s December 2012 issue.

My portfolio #16: Handsome men (and me) say nice things about ladies

Cosmopolitan corralled a bunch of celebrity blokes and some guy who used to edit a men’s magazine to share their thoughts on what they wished women knew. They ran that stupid editor’s letter photo of me again. I really need a new headshot. This story ran in Cosmo‘s August issue.

My portfolio #14: The not-at-all-evil Empire


My close chum Danny Murphy, former FHM Australia deputy editor, is now editor of the very excellent Empire magazine, Australia’s foremost film publication. He needed a quick story written for the July issue and I, having little to do other than a load of washing, happily agreed.
