About me

I work across journalism, marketing and production in addition to being a writer, publishing my fiction and essays in anthologies and magazines. I work with companies across the UK including the LGBT+ organisation Gaysians, in the vibrant Birmingham arts scene with Beatfreeks or making worldwide connections as an Assistant Managing Editor with the literary journal, Asymptote. As for my journalism work, I frequently cover Arts and Culture, reviewing at The Royal Shakespeare Company, Edinburgh Festival Fringe and Birmingham Royal Ballet. However, my main aim is to platform the unconventional or unheard stories of others. Therefore, I have a particular passion for highlighting the diversity and creativity of the Midlands. It has a fantastic DIY culture and is full of people, who don’t just want to talk about change, but make change happen. I hope to be one of these people and work to produce the independent artist, Erinn Dhesi. I'm also on boards for the Midlands Arts Centre, Graduates Unleashed and formerly on Beatfreeks' Youth Steering Committee. I have been part of China Plate Theatre's The Optimists 2018, Southside Producers 2018, the British Council's Emerging Producers Development Programme 2019, StageOne's Bridge The Gap 2018-19. I am now on the Roundhouse Future Producers scheme 2020. When I'm not working towards my aims, I spend my time enjoying live music, fine art, travel and food.
