The final frontier

A would-be astronaut with a wealth of down-to-Earth writing expertise in the international space business over 25 years, Clive has experience of working across all aspects of print and electronic media, as well as with general business, corporate and space agency offices in the UK, Europe and the United States.

Clive also writes on the environment, the climate crisis facing our planet, and travel, providing high-quality and creative images for the latter through his own professional photography. Based between Peterborough and Grantham in the UK, he is happy to travel anywhere in the world to cover news stories, write feature articles or report on conferences.
