About me

Having completed my undergraduate degree at University of Liverpool, I then went on to freelancing at a couple of local publications including being a Features Editor of the student newspaper and being a music blogger. I was in need of a challenge after two years and set my sights on London, where I studied for an MA at King's College. During my time studying, I've interned and written for several publications and companies. I have over 4 years of writing and editorial experience and my writing portfolio can be found here-
