About me

My title of staff writer at Hurst Media Company, the UK’s trusted media partner, sees me create copy that appears in The Guardian, The Times, Daily Mail, The Evening Standard, The Metro and many more. This role involves producing and subediting content for national media, as well as the company's flagship title Celebrity Secrets – a women's lifestyle publication, which is distributed in OK! magazine bumper packs. Previously I have worked as a digital and print journalist for the likes of the Daily Mirror and MailOnline, a range of Newsquest titles and Scottish Television (STV). My expertise also lies in digital storytelling, social media, marketing, advertising and PR – experience gained from freelance roles at a number of high-profile lifestyle brands. Originally from Glasgow, I am now based in London. My interests include travel, celebrity news, culture, food and drink, lifestyle and fitness.
