About me


Engaged and professional freelance writer with experience working with a variety of start-up projects to produce a huge range of content. I've picked up basic social media management, SEO and PR skills and I'm always keen to learn more. Previously worked as a development assistant in the film industry, as well as an amateur film-maker, and I am interested in all forms of story-telling, lit and film criticism and creative writing. My academic background is in History, Politics, Philosophy and Sociology and I remain an engaged and voracious reader. I am also a keen cinephile and book collector and always on the look-out for new creatives to discover.
