About Me

I am deeply immersed in music and culture, in my lifestyle, writing and social media work. 

Working with a range of internationally acclaimed culture magazines, I have created a strong portfolio of social and digital campaigns alongside my writing projects – with a particular focus on underrepresented creatives using my time to discover and provide a platform to give underground artists a voice.
