Creative Writing Graduate

Location icon United Kingdom


Brunel University graduate here, with a degree in Creative Writing and Theatre. Constantly curious, versatile writer with a passion for innovating fresh ways to communicate.

I have experience in publishing, PR for festivals and events, as well as an excellent, ever-growing understanding of the English language. I'm a regular contributor to Le Nurb, the Brunel student newspaper, as well as written for as Hey Millenials blog, The and various anthologies of fiction and poetry. I was a finalist for the Hillingdon Literary Festival Creative Writing competition in 2016 and 2017. This publicity led to one of my poems being used in Nationwide Building Society's Voices campaign to advertise their student banking options.

Samples of my work are available to view below.
