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 note*** I am now on maternity leave, due to return to work in late summer 2023. However, I will still be monitoring my inbox from time to time so do feel free to get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please find a link below to my Substack newsletter "I Drink, Therefore I Am". I write about different philosophers each week and pair them with a glass of wine!
