I’m a freelance NCTJ-qualified journalist and have been writing about music, travel, festivals, politics, comedy and entertainment for the past 15 years.

Titles I’ve written for include the Guardian, NME, The Fly, Clash, Contact Music, Big Issue and the Telegraph.

For my copywriting work – writing for brands rather than editorial – see the copywriting page.
