I'm an editor and writer based in London.

Founding editor-in-chief of Polyester zine, I commission, produce, and oversee all content under Polyester print and online, including partnerships and collaborations. I'm also the host of The Polyester Podcast. 

With a focus on contemporary feminism, arts and culture and identity; I also regularly freelance for both print and online publications, including Vice, Noisey, Huck Magazine Dazed, i-D, Riposte, and more.

Additionally I regularly engage in public speaking commitments and run workshops at festivals and institutions including London College of Communication, London College of Fashion, Protein Studios, Tate Modern, Brighton Illustration Festival. I've also spoken at international events in Croatia (as part of VOX feminist festival) and Iceland (as part of Iceland Airwaves). 

As part of Polyester, I've curated exhibitions and events including Female Matters', an art show to raise funds for FGM charities, 'What Does Our Future Hold?' a curated intersectional tarot deck and one night show, and a third birthday exhibition at Protein Studios to celebrate three years of Polyester.

I also work on production, art direction, and the overseeing of commercial projects both as part of Polyester and independently. My clients include Nike, Converse, The BFI, Napapijri, Melissa Shoes, Dream Wife, Test Pressing Festival and Lovebox Festival.

I've been named one of the most exciting new editors shaping the future of magazines by i-D magazine, and one of 15 coolest young Londoners by The Evening Standard
