Location icon United Kingdom

As an avid reader and a passionate writer, I've spent many years writing freelance reviews and features within the music industry, as well as co-manage a blog focusing on pop culture.

A recent graduate from the University of Winchester with my undergrad degree focused on Creative Writing & English Literature. My degree included research heavy modules such as Psychoanalysis & Literature, American Gothic Literature and Film Script Development.
My dissertation took the form of an ECP (Extended Creative Project) which was part research, part creative piece. For this project, I chose to write a comic book script and research current comic book trends, specifically as an art form in Japan and it's popularity in the west.

I'm now developing my skills professionally as a content writer & copywriter.
