About me

I’m a London-based freelance journalist, sub-editor and copywriter. My journalism has appeared in publications such as Vogue, Stylist, Red, Woman & Home, the i newspaper and Happiful. I currently also have a full-time position as a sub-editor, but am looking to build up my freelance client base. I am open to journalistic, copywriting and sub-editing work, and have plenty of experience in all three.
