18581262_314422745660283_7178670022854705152_nHello! I’m currently working part-time for Reuters News Agency contributing articles about the latest trends in media innovation.

I recently finished studying Interactive Journalism at London’s City University, where I investigated online abuse against MPs for my coding project. I also created the Digital News blog for City University, which covers the university’s research and journalism news.

Since City, I worked as an Interactive intern at The Times producing graphs and interactive pieces across all sections of the paper.

During the UK General Election, I worked with Full Fact and First Draft News debunking misleading information across social media.

I’ve also written for Storyful, The Evening Standard, Gal-dem.com, VICE, Dazed & Confused, The Independent, Indy100, City Metric, The International Media Association and The Huffington Post.

In my spare time, I’m learning to code, sending out quirky FOIs and trying to learn new gymnastics moves (can do a pretty decent handstand).

Contact me for any queries, requests or commissions.
