About me
I am a freelance journalist, editor and social media assistant based in Manchester. I currently work as Social Media Assistant at gal-dem, and freelance as Clubs Editor at The Skinny.

I am available for freelance commissions in online and print journalism, social media, and marketing and PR opportunities, such as writing press releases and artist bios.
