I am a freelance journalist based in the UK. My portfolio includes music reviews and interviews as well as socio-political and current affairs articles that have appeared in print and digital publications including American Songwriter, Record Collector magazine and online, I AM THAT GIRL, and Unicorn Magazine.
I have a background in International Relations and Security. My MA thesis looked at the extent to which the media shaped public opinion during the Vietnam and Iraq (2003) wars. My academic profile and portfolio can be viewed here.
I have written pieces ranging from the commercialisation of feminism and feminism in popular culture, critiques surrounding freedom of speech and the #MeToo movement as well as recently interviewing Iranian refugees.
I also worked as an A&R intern on Joy Williams’ Grammy Nominated (Best Folk Album) Front Porch.
