About me
I am a freelance writer with experience pitching and writing interviews, features, news stories and opinion pieces for The Guardian, The Independent, VICE, Refinery29, Time Out London, Dazed, DIY, Noisey, Huck, PinkNews, Red Bull Music, ShortList and O2 Alive on topics including music, the arts, queer issues, climate change, the internet and youth culture. I have worked on various branded content campaigns including VICE partnerships with VisitBritain, Art Fund and VanMoof bikes, and regularly do in-house shifts at Time Out London working on content across the global website and the London website and print magazine. Recently I have worked as Script Editor on video projects with Erdem, De Gournay and Matches Fashion.

I really enjoyed the challenge of creating original and informative content which also raised awareness of VanMoof's products.

I wrote up the introductions to each editorial piece, introducing the venue and the interviewee, and highlighting th
  • VICE x VisitBritain
    VICE x VisitBritainIn 2018/19 I worked with VICE on a series of branded editorials for a campaign with VisitBritain which aimed to encourage more millennials to travel (or 'Microgap') in Great Britain and comprised of a microsite with editorial and video content themed around various areas of Britain.
