About

Journalism

I am a journalist, content producer and web editor who has been involved in print and online publishing since 2005. I began my career as a freelance writer and editorial assistant on consumer magazines – namely BBC Olive magazine, Real People and Weight Watchers – before undertaking the intensive Postgraduate Diploma in Magazine Journalism at City University, London. During my time on this well-established journalism course I received training in everything from reporting and feature writing, to sub-editing, Photoshop, InDesign, media law and even HTML web design.

I then went onto work as a news reporter for arts newspaper The Stage, where I wrote news and features for the print and online publications. In this exciting and demanding role I broke exclusive industry news stories, interviewed high-profile actors, directors and politicians and beat deadlines to keep up with the demands of online reporting.

Adept at tackling different subjects and always able to adapt to different brands and house-styles, I have since worked as a sub-editor at The Times newspaper, and as a freelance writer for The Guardian, Brides and Heaver Magazine.

Digital Media

With a keen interest in digital media and digital marketing, I am currently working as a freelance content producer for the Royal London Society for Blind People. The varied role involves copywriting and copyediting for the web, CMS and SEO skills, and social media management. I also assist with drafting occasional press releases and print marketing materials. As well as written content, I also have digital audio and video editing skills using FCP X.

Born in London, I studied English & Related Literature at the University of York before entering journalism.
