ME, ME, ME

I write mainly about pop culture, mental health, sex stuff and the politics thereof ā€“ or, "music, being mad and shagging", as one of my editors once put it.

In 2010 I graduated from Bath Spa University with a BA in English Literature and Creative Writing. After that, I went on to complete a MA in International Journalism at Cardiff University, graduating with distinction. My thesis was on the use of satire and political humour by oppositional groups as a method of nonviolent resistance, looking at conflicts in Syria, Egypt, Serbia and Russia as case studies. In 2016, I was nominated as Culture Writer of the Year at the Words by Women Awards, which I gracelessly lost.

Iā€™m currently Associate Editor at VICE UK. Prior to that, I was Assistant Editor at Noisey UK. You can find all my work for them here and here. My writing has also appeared in Pitchfork, The Guardian, Glamour and The Debrief, among other publications.
