I’m a writer, editor, creative producer, and researcher currently working at the BBC as part of a network of disabled journalists and producers.
My work branches a range of skills across journalism, oral history, archival work, investigations, and cross-collaborating with different disciplines. And the themes I work on tend to have music, heritage, archive, history, people, or community or politics as their basis.
I started out at Live Magazine, an under-25s network of writers and makers who produced a magazine every three months.
I went on to write and freelance for VICE, NME, The Guardian, Independent, Red Bull, and Dazed writing about everything from protest movements to arts and culture scenes.
Since then I’ve switched from journalism into producing, where I’ve helped bring together London and UK-wide festivals, helped re-design a major museum, made a fake tabloid newspaper for Glastonbury, and hung the words of London poets on bridges along the Thames.
As an events producer, I’ve worked for Glastonbury Festival, Thames Festival Trust, Museum of London, Independent Venue Week, Brainchild, STEEZ, Cable London and a range of others.
And as an oral historian and researcher I’ve helped to bring together and research books on iconic music scenes, documented the stories of a magnificent graveyard, and brought to life the stories of a soon to be demolished dental hospital.
I’m a member of The Creative Society’s Step Up program and part of the Clore Emerging Leaders network.
