About me
Hi! I'm a freelance journalist, voiceover artist and radio host based in London. I recently moved back after a three year stint in Amsterdam where I earned a degree in Literary and Cultural Analysis. I also just completed a course entitled ‘Feature Writing in the Digital Age’ taught by journalists Harry Lambert and Samuel Earle. The course focussed on engaging, long form journalism as well as how to edit, research, pitch and interview. You can find me on Voices Radio on the fourth Sunday of every month where I do a show called Seasonal Expression (more on that in 'Projects'). I've got a broad range of interests but I generally write interviews and cultural commentary. You can also send anything urbanism or memory studies related my way! Languages: English, fluent Cantonese, intermediate French Extra skills: Website building (weebly), audio editing (Audacity), newsletter writing (Mailchimp) , social media

  • Seasonal Expressions with Tiffany Lai - Voices Radio
    Seasonal Expressions with Tiffany Lai - Voices RadioI host a weird and wonderful show every month at Voices Radio in Kings Cross called Seasonal Expressions. To a certain extent this show does what it says on the tin, it’s a show about expressing how a season feels. It came about when I started thinking about the subjective division between senses. I really believe that you can taste words, smell sights and hear flavours and today’s show is about finding out how. I wanted to see whether I could translate a particular temperature in a particular

    Exchange SemesterUniversity College London
     - London, United Kingdom
    In this exciting four month exchange I took courses in both Anthropology and Comparative Literature. These included a feature writing course taught by journalists Harry Lambert and Sam Earle as well as a Digital Infrastructure course examining objects as wide ranging as the NHS app and Columbian waterways. The feature writing course was especially enlightening and was where I learnt to edit, pitch, interview and write long form, engaging content for an online audience.

    Literary and Cultural Analysis offers you the intellectual knowledge and skills to interpret and reflect on literature, art and popular culture. Central to the programme is the hands-on engagement with concrete objects – novels, films, poems, operas, television series, art installations, websites, performances, and so on. The detailed analysis of these objects is combined with wide-ranging philosophical, political and social approaches to culture and the arts. In this way, the programme enables you to interpret and evaluate particular texts, images, and objects in relation to larger philosophical explorations and cultural developments.
