I’m a freelance features writer and reporter. I love interviewing people and hearing their stories, and I have a special interest in spirituality, philosophy and culture. I freelance as a reporter for The Times, and I’ve written features for The Telegraph’s Stella magazine, Psychologies magazine and the Jewish Chronicle. I do celebrity interviews for the Daily Mail’s Weekend magazine, and I’ve had arts and lifestyle pieces published in The Guardian and the i Paper. I sometimes freelance as a producer at ITV Good Morning Britain, which means organising and casting topical debates.
I was an assistant commissioning editor on the Daily Mail features desk, with highlights including a piece on the crisis of plastic in our oceans from a Blue Planet II producer. I also wrote for the paper, including a piece about how the royals have ‘recycled their rocks’ down the generations. I started out as a reporter for my local paper, the Hampstead and Highgate Express (Ham&High), where I interviewed the family of Quamari Barnes who was tragically stabbed outside his school, and spoke with Sharon Shoesmith about her fears of being attacked, 11 years on from Baby P’s death. I covered the campaign to free Nazanin Zagari-Ratcliffe, originally from West Hampstead, who is still jailed in Iran.
