I’m a journalist focusing on business, technology and personal finance.
I started off writing for trade publications covering the media and advertising industries after graduating from Goldsmiths as a mature student just after the global financial crisis in 2008.
Since then I’ve covered broad business news, ranging from economics, property and retail, to politics, policy and tech while at London’s leading daily business newspaper City A.M.
As part of the online team, I helped drive record traffic, covering breaking news alongside follow-up insight and analysis to maximise engagement.
This included stories ranging from company profit updates like Tesco’s accounting scandal, to politics - including Brexit and too many general elections to count - as well as events, such as Apple’s iPhone launches, and sadly, terrorist attacks.
Becoming technology editor for both print and online, I was lucky enough to cover the tech startup ecosystem springing up in London, including the wave of fintech and rise of challenger banks as Silicon Roundabout and The City collided.
I won ‘tech journalist of the year’ at the UK Tech Awards 2016, in recognition of incisive, accurate, readable commentary and in-depth knowledge of UK tech companies, public and private. Previous winners include writers for the Financial Times, The Times and Business Insider.
I spent time freelancing after a stint setting up the content function of a financial wellbeing startup, where our communications on pension contributions for a global technology client were awarded by the Association for Business Psychology.
I have also worked with clients in the technology space to produce content ranging from op-eds and blog posts to awards entries, including for startups and venture capital firms.
Most recently I've written for The Sun online covering consumer and personal finance, helping millions of readers keep up with how the cost of living crisis is affecting their finances, find the best bargains and understand their money and their rights.
As consumer news editor, I now help lead a team of reporters covering these topics.
