About

If you want to know a bit about me…

Hi. I’m Jack Oughton, sometimes referred to as Koukouvaya. Koukouvaya is the Greek world for ‘owl’ – Owl was my childhood nickname, affectionately given to me because of my sleeping habits.

Amongst other things I’m a writer/journalist, currently freelancing. And by freelancing I mean chasing down commissions with a sharp stick and capturing them.

This is a portfolio site of my more current written work. These clippings are all part of a not very subtle, yet devious plan to convince you that I could be the writer you need. Is it working?

I am taking commissions. Please contact me if you are interested in a quote. Sharp stick optional.

Here’s some of the more recognisable people I’ve written for (in no particular order)

  • FHM
