About me
A decade of experience as a journalist for The Guardian, Observer, ST STYLE, ES Mag, i-D, and British Vogue. I've also worked as a full-time commissioning editor at VICE, Refinery29 and Dazed Media. I've recently worked on copy and campaigns for brands like Dr Martens, Browns, Bershka, Lyst, Flannels, Nike, Soho House, Gucci, Maude, XPRIZE, Evian, and Royal Mail. I do future forecasting and write consumer trend reports for Canvas8, The Digital Fairy and Dazed Studio – on Gen Y and Gen Z behaviours. A confident presenter and host, I've chaired events for brands like Mubi, MAC Cosmetics, and Instagram, have on-camera experience hosting VICE docs, and hosted podcasts for Dazed, Gucci and Penguin. My first book, 'Queer Intentions: A (Personal) Journey Through LGBTQ+ Culture' was published by Picador in 2019. Munroe Bergdorf described it as “an intersectional and insightful journey through the nuances of the queer experience”. My second, 'We Can Do Better Than This' is a global anthology on LGBTQ+ rights and was published by Penguin (Vintage) in June 2021. It features contributions from Beth Ditto, Olly Alexander, Wolfgang Tillmans, Lady Phyll, Peppermint and other figures from the LGBTQ+ community. As an author, I've spoken at The London Review of Books, ICA, Southbank Centre, New York Times Tent at Edinburgh Books Fest, and appeared on ITV News, Sky News, Radio 4, and The Guardian's Today In Focus.

How do we solve this urgent problem, allowing queer people everywhere the opportunity to thrive? In We Can Do Better Than This, 35 voices explore this question.
