I have worked in the media industry for the past nine years. During this time I have worked for an independent music magazine in Sheffield, United Kingdom, (2005-2007) and lived in Beijing, China, where I worked for life, style and music magazine City Weekend (2009-2010). From 2010- 2013 I worked as the music and internet trends journalist at AFP Relaxnews , an international leisure news wire in collaboration with France’s biggest news agency AFP (Agence France Presse). I have also freelanced for numerous online and in-print publications on China (The World of Chinese Magazine, China Club HQ for example), online fashion blog Running In Heels and online music magazine Whe The Gramophone Rings (whenthegramophonerings.com).
