About me
Experienced writer and editor with a demonstrated history of working within electronic music media. I was previously at Mixmag, the world’s biggest dance music and club culture title, where I thrived working within an ever-evolving, innovative and forward facing industry where no two days (or two stories) were the same. My skills lie in features writing, interviewing, news writing, SEO strategy, editing and reviewing, with multiple global cover features under my belt. I also have a Bachelor’s Degree focused in Fashion Journalism from London College of Fashion/UAL, so I suppose it’s a given that my interests aren’t solely limited to just music – fashion, current affairs, art, tech and so on also great passions of mine.

    Staff Writermixmag
    London, United KingdomFreelance
    As Mixmag's Staff Writer, I am tasked with daily, weekly and monthly content deadlines for both my own edited portions of the magazine (Industry Insider, Bass & Club reviews page) as well as extra tasks that can range from interviewing and profiling DJs and producers for cover features, discussing coverage with leading music streaming platforms, working with promoters and industry key players to assess suitable choices to cover and more. Together with my print team, we are dedicated to publishing a colourful, dynamic and representative magazine each and every month, with a number of my pitches and contributions included every time. I've interviewed the likes of Kelela, Asmara, Mura Masa, Volvox, Nastia, Deena Abdelwahed, Lorenzo Senni, Dis Fig, Aya, Sicaria Sound, Gareth Cooper (CEO, Broadwick Live), Christie Driver-Snell (Editor, Dance & Electronic, Spotify UK/IR) and more over the course of my career thus far. I also launched a Mixmag x SheSaid.So editorial partnership with Andreea Magdalina, founder of SS.S, that opened the doors to our publication to a sea of female and female-identifying writers and creatives from within their network and has led to over a dozen commissions since its inception in late 2019.
