About me

Since I can remember, I've been reading. From comics like The Beano to West African classic like Things Fall Apart, I've spent my first 25 years wandering the earth with my nose in some kind of book. Now I weave narratives of my own, and have found a deep passion in telling stories and documenting culture. Ranging from longform interviews to op-ed pieces, you can find my words on (or in) The FADER, VICE, Hunger Magazine, CLASH, Complex, and SBTV (at the later I worked in house across digital and editorial content). Elsewhere, I've worked with a number of brands, agencies and platforms as a copywriter and social & creative strategist. So far, clients have included adidas and TMS, McDonald's and Hubrick, for whom I have crafted bespoke digital and social copy, while also sitting with relevant planning and strategy teams to map out campaigns.
