What I do

I am a freelance writer, primarily of personal essays that explore identity, sexuality, mental health and culture. Some bylines include Stylist, gal-dem, Sleek Mag, Bad Form, and Time Out.
I am open for commissions!

I am the co-host of CLOSE-UP with Aurelia Magazine, a warm, funny and often existential podcast that gets personal. Our first season is now streaming on all platforms, with our second coming soon.

I have been a host and a speaker for various in-person and virtual events. Selected clients: Writing on the Wall, gal-dem, The Rights Collective, and I Like Networking. I also host my own events regularly, surrounding the art of personal writing, storytelling and getting to the heart of who we are and what we feel.

I am currently a longlist judge for The Portico Prize - if you'd like me to join your panel, just get in touch.

I am also a model, signed to J'adore Models. Some recent clients include Illamasqua, Galaxy, Nike ACG, River Island.
