About me

Currently based in Berlin, working on the Brand Management team at Highsnobiety. Adding projects when I find the time! Since graduating Leeds University in 2016, writing and comms have shown themselves to be my primary strengths, and I have been fortunate enough to become part of the founding team at PUSH Magazine - a new print title dedicated to exploring and developing youth culture. Brand building and curation at PUSH takes up most of my time, and it's a role I'm juggling with being City Development Manager (Leeds) for event discovery platform DICE.fm, and a chronic party starter and DJ with my event and media channel Youth Club Sounds.

    • Youth Club Sounds started as a radio podcast and internet record label. It soon became a labour of love, and an opportunity for me to bring a new sonic dimension to the tremendous Leeds music scene. Our primary focus is now our monthly residency at Headrow House, Leeds, where we bring the sounds of hip hop, rnb and future soul to the city. In the past we have collaborated with DICE, Budweiser, Annie Mac Presents and Red Bull Music Academy.
