Location icon United Kingdom

I am currently in my final year of studying for a BA in Journalism at University of the Arts London (UAL), I also am the PR and Promotions Assistant at Defected Records.

I have had a range of experience interning for magazines such as MixMag, Harper's Bazaar and Town & Country. I have also worked at Esquire Magazine, assisting in coordinating Hearst Magazines' biggest event of the year, the Esquire Townhouse.

Whilst studying I have developed my skills as a writer, and enjoy both news coverage and feature writing. My interests lie predominantly with music journalism (particularly concerning dance/electronic music and club culture) however also enjoy covering lifestyle/fashion, film and broader news related issues. I have also had some experience with multimedia journalism, which is a skill I am hoping to continue developing.
