I'm a freelance journalist, based in east London. I write on a broad range of issues relating to the international arts scene, from theatre and visual art to heritage and design. I've interviewed a number of leading theatre-makers, actors and artists, including Jenny Sealey, Brian Blessed, Alecky Blythe, David Best, Sofie Grabol and Oliver Jeffers. My work has appeared in publications including the Guardian, The Economist and World of Interiors, and I'm deputy editor of Fest, which publishes before and during the Edinburgh festivals each summer.

I'm also a travel journalist, my features and city guides appearing in Condé Nast Traveller, Lonely Planet, the Independent, the Daily Telegraph, and numerous inflight magazines. I had a baby in autumn 2016 and launched a practical blog inspired by my travels with her a year later. It's called Baby Adventuring and covers everything from getting a first passport for a child to navigating public transport with a pushchair to surviving a night in a hotel room with a baby.

I call myself an arts and travel journalist, but sometimes I come across stories that don't fit into either of those categories, but are too interesting not to write about. So my other published writing includes features on social and community issues, start ups and cycling.

When I'm not writing, I'm probably editing, either in one of the freelance editorial roles I hold, or for individuals on one-off projects. These are often culture or travel focused, but my inner pedant is happy editing copy on most subjects, so this side of things tends to be pretty varied too.
