About

I am a London-based writer and editor. My work has appeared in the Observer, the Daily Telegraph, the Guardian, the Sunday Times, the Spectator, Wired, Intelligent Life and the TLS.

Alongside my writing I have held staff editing positions on national newspapers since January 2011, first at the Daily Telegraph and, since June 2014, on the Observer Magazine.
