About me


I am a recent graduate of English Literature seeking to work for innovative and creative projects in media, publishing and the arts. I am passionate about new fiction, thoughtful journalism, visual arts, TV production, and theatre. I want to put my experience as an editor, writer, and astute reader to work. I am diligent and ever eager to expand my skills base either by working independently or as part of a team. I hope that I can provide a fresh outlook and hard work.
