Hello! I’m currently working as a freelance social media news producer at Reuters and The Guardian.
I graduated from London’s City University with an MA in Interactive Journalism. During the course, I investigated online abuse against MPs and created the Digital News blog for the university’s research and journalism news.
During the 2017 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, The Times, VICE, Dazed & Confused, The Independent, Indy100, City Metric, The International Media Association and The Huffington Post.
In my spare time, I’m learning Spanish, 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.
