I live in Edinburgh and write about books, art, culture and climate change. I have forged a successful career in journalism, writing for a range of international publications including The Week, New Statesman, History Today and more. In 2021, I won the Nico Colchester Prize and spent four months writing about European culture and arts for The Economist.
I have experience in reporting, interviewing sources, podcasting and editing. Prior to writing full-time, I worked in digital marketing and communications for several years.
I enjoy reading, cooking, gaming and long walks in the Scottish Highlands. I also have a PhD in French and Italian Renaissance literature from Durham University.
Please feel free to get in touch if you have a freelance or full-time writing opportunity.
