About me

I'm a London-based editor, freelance writer and publisher. I'm mostly known for my publication BRICKS. I've previously written for Gurls Talk, Riposte Magazine and ELLE. My writing focuses on politics and feminist issues, emerging talent, fashion, art and identity. I am passionate about using my voice to challenge societal constructs and lift up marginalised communities. I'm motivated to support lesser-known talent and creatives. In 2017, I created Publish Cardiff, a one-day publishing event of talks and workshops with an aim to combat the lack of alternative education methods available in Wales for creatives; Dazed, Refinery 29 and British Vogue all hosted talks. Aside from publishing and writing, I also regularly lecture on the Fashion courses at the University of South Wales. I've also mentored for brands such as Depop and Melissa Shoes.
