About me
I'm a freelance writer, editor and consultant based in London. Specialising in art, photography and culture, I have written profiles, features and investigative stories on both emerging and established names within the creative industry. Alongside freelance projects, I'm also currently an online writer at Port magazine. With over seven years' experience, I have written hundreds of articles for It's Nice That, and I have contributed for titles including AnOther, Elephant, Feature Shoot, Creative Lives in Progress, Sixteen Journal, Coeval, Whynow among others. I have a reputation for scouting out new and exciting talent, and have interviewed leading names such as Martin Parr, Marina Abramović and Chris Killip. I have also provided editorial consultation and research for commercial clients including Adobe, Chanel and Wix. I was also the editor of Icon's Design Guide 2019. Do get in touch for any editorial or freelance opportunities.
