About


I am a freelance culture writer and editor for lots of different places, like The Guardian, The Observer, Financial Times, Pitchfork, MTV News, NPR, Uncut, Buzzfeed, Lenny, Rookie, Wire, BBC and more. I live in London.

I used to be the features editor of NME (2013 – 2015), associate editor at Pitchfork (2012 – 2013), and assistant reviews editor of NME (2010 – 2012).

This is my Twitter.

This is my last.fm.

I don’t use Facebook so don’t waste your time pitching me there.

I also do copywriting for some big music companies, and regularly appear on the Monocle 24 Arts Review and the BBC to talk about music and feminist issues. In April 2016 I wrote/researched/presented a documentary about university dropouts for BBC Radio 4.
