About me

In between my adventures in search of good food and bad puns, I have been working in fashion and lifestyle publishing since graduation on both print and digital platforms, in retail, content marketing, and at traditional media titles. I also tweet a lot. We would make a good match if you are looking for a millennial lens, encyclopaedic and up-to-date fashion and cultural trend knowledge, visual literacy and skill with conceptualisation and writing across fashion, art, and lifestyle content. And singing. So much singing. I ask a lot of questions and I tell bad jokes, but I also put in the work required to exceed expectations and produce excellence on every project. Whether it's fashion, lifestyle, youth culture or tech, I love turning what I know, see, and experience of the world into original content that people can interact with and find value in. Let's make some?
