An aspirational and independent creative writer and thinker, based in South East London, seeking opportunities to learn and grow in my craft; well-read, well-spoken and well-presented, I am a believer in the power of ideas and aesthetics who carries my philosophies close to heart and combine my approaches to art as in life.
Feature WriterRooms Magazine
- London, United KingdomFreelance
Working as one of the main content generators and main feature writers of the international Rooms: Art uncovered magazine (Not to be mistaken with Rooms, the interior design company which took over our handle following a loss of funding...), it was my responsibility to liaise with artists and their agents, to arrange and conduct interviews, as well as attending private views and music festivals; to write for our quarterly print magazine, as well as generating content for our online publication, in correspondence with thematic briefs and the overall style or motif of our publication, whilst not allowing the nuance of the work itself to escape, through effective writing and self-editing.
