About me

I'm a freelance writer and editor specialising in music, film culture and travel - often veering off the beaten path to write insightful, experiential stories on what catches my ear or eye. Career highlights so far include interviews and cover stories with some of the artists that have written the soundtrack to my life including Velvet Underground's John Cale, Bjork, Diana Krall, Sonic Youth's Kim Gordon, The Fall's Mark E. Smith, Marilyn Manson, Rufus Wainwright and many more, giving me an entirely new perspective on works that I love, the creative process and the power of communication. I'm always interested in meeting people who share my passion for immersive new music and travel, so feel free to reach out and send me a message on here, or via my website you'll find below
