ABOUT

I currently work as a freelance comment commissioning editor for The Independent, and as a freelance copywriter for the organic food company Abel & Cole.

As a journalist, I'm dedicated to creating in-depth features exploring social justice issues and shining a light on poorly-understood subjects, particularly in relation to politics and mental health.

I was the first UK journalist to break the news of fashion photographer Terry Richardson’s abuse of models, leading to Condé Nast banning him from their publications.
