About Me

I have done stints working in TV, magazines, newspapers, PR and even worked one season as an elf at Santa’s grotto. I was a journalist with The Independent newspaper for six years, first as the paper’s social media editor, then a features writer, then I went to the Evening Standard as the deputy editor of Going Out and came back to The Independent as the music editor and arts writer before being made redundant when the paper closed down in 2016. I have always been interested in the power of the arts to change lives for the better and I am the editor of visionaryarts.org.uk, a not-for-profit organisation rewarding arts with a social impact. I also write for the national press and magazines about arts and culture, particularly theatre. I am currently working my first play – Doing Well .
