About me

I’ve had lots of job titles: I've been features editor at Time Out; I created and project managed the acclaimed Time Out Trashed projects for London teenagers; I was head of Head of Guardian Masterclasses and oversaw two years of international growth. I’m now focusing on my own business Clever Boxer which I founded with Alan Rutter, and which helps people to punch above their weight in the creative industries. We're doing this through events, consultancy and however else people might pay us money. I started my journalism career in Edinburgh at The List magazine before writing for Jockey Slut, Sleazenation, The Face, the Sunday Times Style magazine, NME, Muzik and several Australian broadsheets. I launched Time Out London's Cabaret section and was features editor there until 2012.
