About me

I am a graduate, journalist, content manager and a charismatic writer. My experience in the industry is broad having worked in the mediums of broadcast, print and online. I have written and worked alongside major companies such as The Guardian, BBC, ITN, Our London Olympics and ITV. Recently an open letter that I published to a racist abuser went viral and was featured in major news publications including Buzzfeed, Evening Standard, BBC, The Independent, The Daily Mail and the Huffington Post. The content was shared just over 12,000 times and viewed just under a million times online and as a consequence, I appeared live on London Live News and BBC News to discuss cyber-bullying, social media trolls and the culture influencing the way 20 somethings use the internet today. I have an excellent understanding of media law, having studied it within my degree, first applying the knowledge at The Guardian and continually applying it as the editor-in-chief and Content Manager of Dream Nation. Dream Nation, a events and media organisation, is an online community that has holds three annual events, with popular musical acts, that routinely sell out. Whilst I have been responsible for the growth of the company, the Dream Nation community is estimated to have 15,500 people across all our online platforms. 2,500 have attended past events and 20,000 people every month via Facebook, generating more than 7,500 engagements: 125,000 people see our content each month via Twitter. As a writer, producer and broadcaster I have been able to garner a lot of interview skills, generate exclusive content and the opportunity to build and stay in touch with an extensive network of contacts over time which in turn makes working in the magazine environment a lot easier.
