I’m a writer, editor, creative project manager, and researcher based in South-East London. I’m interested in work that combines the themes of heritage, history, education, storytelling and local communities.
I’ve written for a number of publications, including Vice, The Guardian, Independent, and Dazed. And worked on projects with Glastonbury Festival, Shelter, Cable London, Secret Garden Party, Thames Festival Trust, and Independent Venue Week.
At 17, I was one of the youngest columnists ever for The Guardian reporting on life outside of a conventional school system. And have continued to comment on music and political issues with them for the next few years. Since 2010, I’ve been involved in various music, art, and creative projects – helping set up the Kings Cross based folk record label The Folkroom, running story-telling projects like One Summer Soundtrack, working as a music editor for Live Magazine, and consulting on creative media and projects for Gigwise, Thames Festival Trust, Independent Venue Week and more.
I have consulted on events and was involved in running the multi-discipline club night called Steez, and have supported the projects of Brainchild since they started five years ago.
In 2016, I edited The Shangri Liar for Shangri La’s 2016 Glastonbury programme. In 2016, I also graduated with 1st Class Honours BA in Sociology and Anthropology from Goldsmiths.
I continue to write on commission about music, food, and cultural issues, as well as consulting, project assisting on events and supporting projects as an editor, and project manager.
Previous work includes: BBC, The Guardian, Vice, Glastonbury Festival, Tate, Thomas Cook, Shelter, Lambeth Council, Nike, Converse, Penguin Books, Pan Macmillan, Human Appeal UK, Thames Festival Trust, Independent Venue Week, Trinity Laban, Channel 4, and Brainchild.
I’m a member of The Creative Society’s Step Up program.
