About me

I am a young and enthusiastic writer with an ability to approach an eclectic range of topics and present them in a flavourful, albeit sensible manner. I specialise in creative and cultural fields, with a particular emphasis on music. I have a very brave and liberal writing style - one that resembles a classical symphony with a Rock 'N' Roll zeal - yet I always aim to submit meticulous compositions and can be very flexible to thematic demands. If the topic allows it, I like to embed personal experiences and metaphorical antics to intrigue the reader. With influences from Hunter S. Thompson and the likes of Tom Wolfe - as well as the classics - I like to engulf myself in a subject with a methodical approach inspired by gonzo journalism whilst providing the work with a creative flair.

Education

MA Critical Creative Analysis

Goldsmiths, University of London

Oct 2014 - Nov 2015

  • A degree in Sociology that was designed to stimulate analytical comprehension of a variety of philosophical and social thinkers, as well as apply their discourses to cultural phenomena. The program also included modules which attempted to blend sociology with creative arts in the likes of music and photography in order to outline a connection between the two seemingly contrasting field, thus providing a fascinating outlook on contemporary cultural production. I completed the program upon the submission of a dissertation that explored the role of early 20th century social climate in the development of literary modernism.
