About me

London-based and Yorkshire-bred, I’m a journalist, copywriter and editor who creates compelling editorial and commercial copy across multiple platforms.

I have expertise in travel, LGBTQ+ lives, social justice issues, culture and the criminal justice system, but can put my pen to most subjects.

As The Independent’s primary lifestyle and travel freelancer, I’ve written over 1,500 stories covering everything from the death of Queen Elizabeth II, and the Covid-19 pandemic, to stories about so-called LGBTQ+ conversion therapy, women who gamble, and women drag queens. I’m used to a fast-paced working environment, whether it’s writing breakers, live blogs or longer form pieces, and can handle stories with both sensitivity and levity.

From 2019-2022, I was the travel editor for DIVA magazine, the world’s leading magazine for LGBTQIA women and non-binary people, and have written over 500 stories for The i, covering everything from Russia’s war in Ukraine, to the Sarah Everard vigil. 

Well-versed in SEO, subbing, and social media, I’m as comfortable creating snappy copy for brands such as British Airways, GoFundMe, and Flo, as producing features, comment, news and reviews to tight deadlines for publications such as The i, Evening Standard, The Telegraph, Positive News, Stylist, PinkNews and The F-Word.

Earlier in my career, I worked in the criminal justice system and not-for-profit sector with victims of sexual and violent crime and have specialist skills, knowledge and experience in this sector.
