About me

Copywriter at Harvey Nichols with a penchant for puns, adoration for alliteration and a soft spot for SEO. I deliver lectures on fashion history and digital cultures at London College of Communication and University for the Creative Arts. Oodles of experience in editorial, social media and production with Nike SB and Wavey Garms has helped me pen quick, engaging and highly shareable copy. I'm also a dab hand with a spreadsheet.
