About & Contact

I am a London-based journalist and editor covering art, fashion, travel, film and design. I have written across print and digital for The Guardian, The Times, BBC Culture, Vogue, Wallpaper, Vice, The TLS, Literary Review, Dazed, i-D, AnOther, AnOther Man, LOVE, The Face, Re-Edition, Purple and more.

 

From 2015 onwards, I have been Features Editor at the biannual fashion publication Buffalo Zine. Buffalo was awarded Magazine of the Year by Stack in 2017 beating out 400+ independent titles, and has been described by Vice as “a magazine at the vanguard of print culture” and by the New York Times as “on the cutting edge of print”.

In 2018 I launched a new publishing project, The Leopard, in collaboration with stylist Alister Mackie and art director Jamie Andrew Reid. We don’t have a website, but for more info you can read about it here or here. And if you fancy buying the first issue, you can do so here. 

 

I have also worked as a personal researcher to Hans Ulrich Obrist, and as a copywriter and content creator for Adidas, Crabtree & Evelyn, Marni, Phaidon, Selfridges and The Kairos Collective.

 

More recently, I have been working on a weekly basis at Vogue.com editing fashion news and features remotely. I also regularly work in house at i-D, writing, editing and commissioning news and features across fashion, art and film. 

 

I have interviewed figures including Pamela Anderson, David Bailey, Jeff Koons, Stella McCartney, André Leon Talley, Christian Louboutin, Bella Freud, Vito Acconci, Édouard Louis, Giles Deacon, Jeremy Deller, Princess Gloria von Thurn und Taxis, Bobby Gillespie, Peter Schlesinger, Eddie Peake & Barnaba Fornasetti.
