About me
I am a freelance journalist and editor based in Manchester. I currently work as Clubs Editor at The Skinny, where I also regularly contribute to the music section and occasionally to the film and comedy sections. I have over eight years writing experience and over two years editing experience mainly within the arts and culture sector. My particular areas of expertise are in music and club culture, but I also write about comedy, film, TV, art, fashion and more. I am available for freelance commissions in online and print journalism, as well as marketing and PR opportunities, such as writing press releases and artist bios.
