Publications and Experience

Writing in travel, opinion, fiction and screenwriting, I’m available for commissions and offer experienced editorial.

I was educated at the University of Kent, where I obtained an MA in Creative Writing (2013) and a BA in English and American Literature (2011).

I’m an experienced writer and I’ve been published in a wide number of international magazines, for which there are samples at the bottom of the page. In addition, I placed as Runner Up in the National Geographic Travel Writing Competition 2017.

I offer digital and film photography to accompany my writing. Please feel free to visit my instagram to see more of my work.
