About me
As an enthusiastic, highly motivated freelance arts writer for five years, my portfolio includes pieces at top publications including The Guardian, Pitchfork, Dazed Digital, Noisey, Bandcamp Daily, The Wire Magazine and The Quietus. Through years of experience and working with feedback from editors, I have honed strong research and storytelling abilities, CMS, Adobe InDesign and HTML coding skills. Back in 2018, I worked as a news sub-editor for London-based music publication Gigwise. The role involved sub-editing features, interviews and reviews, using Google Documents and Microsoft Word to track and suggest changes. In 2016, I worked as an Editor intern at award winning arts publication The Quietus. Also working as a freelance copywriter I have written press releases, artist biographies and campaign emails for a number of festivals (including Sound City Ipswich and Wild Paths), music venue The John Peel Centre for Creative Arts, artist management and record label PR (PIAS and PAN).
