Hello, my name is Paul Dean. I'm a freelance writer and journalist based in south London and this is my semi-personal blog. I try to update it whenever I do or find something interesting, though I'm afraid I can be pretty forgetful.
You might've seen my beard on our board game show Shut Up & Sit Down, or you may have read my words splashed across a website, magazine or even broadsheet newspaper, or you may know me as the writer on the excellent indie game Maia.
For more about me, click here. Email me at paullicino at gmail.com if you need writing, editing, screenwriting, copywriting or any of those other word-based services. I also have experience as a broadcaster and even a teacher, because I'm pretty neat like that. As my fields of work often overlap, I try to be open about conflicts.
I tweet here. I upload photographs to Flickr here and to Instagram here.
I'm interested in information theory, feminism, science fiction, technology, philosophy (which I studied), games of all types and how the internet changes our culture and our media.
My heroes are people like Kurt Vonnegut, Ursula Le Guin, Anne Frank, Alan Moore and Carl Sagan.
