About

IMG_3244I’m a London-based journalist and scriptwriter, and I am passionate about the arts.

I also write a popular blog on Strictly Come Dancing for Dancing Times.

I previously produced the arts pages for MoveTo Town & Country and Compass magazines, covering theatre, music, dance, exhibitions and cultural events, and I’ve blogged for The Huffington Post.

I worked as a staff sub-editor for Country Life magazine for three years. During that time, I frequently contributed articles and news stories to both the magazine and the website.
