ABOUT ME

I’ve written about artists, adventurers and change-makers for publications including the Guardian, the Observer, the BBC, Vice, Entrepreneur and Huck.

This work has involved climbing aboard a catamaran to talk to an endurance swimmer, hanging out with a roller derby team in Beirut, riding dirt bikes in a field in Wales, tracking down an elusive baker in New Orleans and camping at the Standing Rock reservation in North Dakota during the pipeline protests.

I’ve also helped brands like The North Face, Accenture, WeTransfer, Skillshare, Space Capital, Google and Red Bull tell their stories, through:

  • Editorial-style features
  • White papers and e-books
  • Blog posts
  • Case studies
  • Speeches and pitches

I studied at Cambridge and City University, and in 2020 I was awarded a scholarship from the UK and European Space Agencies to take part in an intensive summer programme at the International Space University in Strasbourg.

I’m based in London, and when I’m not writing, I’m roller skating.
