Hello – about me

I am a freelance digital and magazine journalist, with experience as a digital editor, social media manager and features writer. I currently edit Psychologies magazine’s news and culture pages, as well as writing features, managing its social media profiles (with a following of 1.4 million) and editing psychologies.co.uk.

I currently also work for DIVA magazine as their freelance sub-editor and writer.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved words and writing. I’m especially interested in travel, queer culture, the arts and the outdoors. I truly enjoy diving into researching a story.

I’m also a vegan foodie, mum to Bella the bulldog and lover of yoga.
