Story/About

me black and white

I won’t bore you with my permanent and freelance experience, so you can visit my LinkedIn here or my portfolio if that’s what you’re looking for. Click my FAQ if you have any questions.

Without sounding like a cliché, I’ve loved writing ever since I was a teenager. Diaries, short stories – you name it, I wrote it. I decided at 14 that I wanted to be a writer in some capacity, and it crushed my parent’s very far fetched dream of their daughter becoming a lawyer.

I actually started freelancing when I was 15, contributing to publications and trying to “make it” as a fashion journalist. I vividly remember receiving an angry message from a Parisian designer at 18 after reading one of my pieces, and realised that maybe my cut-throat style would land me on a hit list – oops – 

I studied a BA Hons in Journalism, along with an extensive NCTJ qualification, but after my second year of university I decided that fashion journalism, and journalism of any kind was in essence pretty negative, and although I consider myself thick skinned, I didn’t want to be a part of that world in any capacity.

After graduation I’d dabbled in freelancing for a while, but needed money quickly so left my graduate Marketing role and landed myself in the world of recruitment. 

After three and a half years in the world of recruitment I learnt resilience, earned well and realised that I was in fact writing every day – but in a beneficial capacity for the business world. 

That’s when I realised I could still pursue my passion without sacrificing my integrity, and I guess that leads me up to now.
