I’m a freelance features writer and interviewer. I write about society, lifestyle, culture, and health. I have recently been writing for Psychologies magazine, Grazia, Daily Mail’s Weekend magazine and the Jewish Chronicle. I’ve written arts and lifestyle articles for The Guardian, and been published in The Times, i Paper and The Jerusalem Post. I also freelance at ITV.
I was a freelance assistant commissioning editor on the Daily Mail features desk. I pitched ideas and commissioned features. Highlights include a piece on the crisis of plastic in our oceans from a Blue Planet II producer. I also wrote, finding former child actors to re-enact their old ads and looking at how the royals have ‘recycled their rocks’ down the generations.
I was a reporter for my local paper, the Hampstead and Highgate Express (Ham&High), covering health, local politics, breaking news, crime and human interest stories. I wrote the front page almost every week and a lot of my stories were picked up by the nationals, including my interview with Baby P boss Sharon Shoesmith. I was chosen for sensitive interviews, including one with the family of 15-year-old Quamari Barnes, who was tragically stabbed outside his school.
I commissioned blogs for the Roundhouse and tutored on their media course. I have an MA in Investigative Journalism from City University and an English Literature degree from Bristol University. I have a graduate diploma in law. I worked for charities including the Peres Centre for Peace in Tel Aviv-Jaffa.
