About Me

Berlin Summer

I am an NQJ accredited journalist with eight years experience working on newspapers, breaking news websites, print and online magazines including BBC News Magazine, journals and blogs in the UK and Germany.

Currently living in Berlin, my most recent post was as senior/online editor for arts, culture and reportage magazine Exberliner. Under my tenure here the publication’s online traffic grew by over 40%.

As a freelance journalist I co-founded the Lost Shoe Collective, a cooperative of writers, academics, journalists and filmmakers based in countries across the EU. Projects I’ve worked on include a documentary called Artist Run, for which I interviewed a number of independent artists in Berlin and Reykjavik, Iceland, and a six-part web series, which is now in production.

Previously in the UK, I worked as a senior reporter at the Harrow Times and Watford Observer, both weekly printed newspapers with affiliated websites and social media.

Prior to this I was a reporter at the Dundee Evening Telegraph, a daily paper with three editions printed throughout the afternoon covering Tayside and north Fife.

In 2012 I completed an NCTJ-acredited diploma in newspaper journalism at Cardiff University.

I have also written for BBC News Online, the British Medical Journal (BMJ) group, the Nottingham Post, the Leicester Mercury, the Melton Times and the South Wales Argus.

I wrote for The Beaver and London Student during my undergraduate degree in Philosophy at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).

A Little More About Me…

I graduated from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) in 2011 with a BSc. Philosophy, Logic and Scientific Method.

At LSE I took courses in Philosophy (morality and values, philosophy of science, philosophy of social science, philosophy of mathematics, philosophy of medicine), Logic, Economics, Government (Politics), and Social Policy.

Examples of my essays can be found here.

I enjoy travel, learning about different cultures and meeting people with interesting stories. And I find informed debate on social policy hard to resist.
