Work history

Currently

Freelance Film & Entertainment Journalist

Freelance Writer

Apr 2011
  • Over the past 4 years I have worked as a freelance writer for numerous publications including Little White Lies, Huck, Total Film, MovieScope, The List, Candid, SciFiNow, View London and Real Crime Magazine. I also took on the film editor position for one year at The Arts Desk in 2014. I started out writing for sci-fi, horror and fantasy magazine Starburst on its return back in 2011 and have since branched out to cover all genres of film with a focus on film festivals and documentaries – including being a judge on the AWFJ (Alliance of Women Film Journalists) jury at Sheffield Doc Fest. To date I've covered Cannes, London Film Festival, Sundance London, Berlinale, Frightfest, SXSW, TIFF and DIFF.
