ABOUT

Since graduating from a Journalism BA (Hons) degree in 2011, I've worked as a Journalist, Editor, Social Media Manager, Communications Consultant, Proofreader and Speaker for a variety of clients.

Today I'm proud to be the Editor of Premier Christianity - the UK's leading Christian magazine.

 

PAST EXPERIENCE

I've written front page stories for newspapers and magazines, press releases for musicians and online pieces for websites such as Read Write Web and YourMiddleEast.com. I was the UK correspondent for Middle East current affairs show Focal Point which was broadcast on Inspiration TV throughout 2014.

Over the past decade I've had the privilege of interviewing hundreds of stars, leaders and trend setters in everything from entertainment and music to politics and current affairs. Highlights have included conversations with adventurers Bear Grylls and Sir Ranulph Finnes, chart toppers Moby and Owl City, racing driver Jaime Alguersuari and Grammy award winning Gospel artists Israel Houghton and Mary Mary.

Selected outlets where my work has been published or broadcast: Premier Christianity magazine, Premier Christian Radio, ReadWrite, Channel 4, EntertainmentWise, The Times of Israel, Lapido Media, Thought Catalog, Revelation TV, Christian Today, Integrity Music, Sorted Magazine and Cross Rhythms.

WORK HARD, PLAY HARD...

I love what I do. But when I'm not interviewing people, writing articles or editing the magazine you can often find me enjoying life with my friends and family.

In 2015 I achieved a life-long ambition and ran the London Marathon. I also have a keen interest in whisky, traveling, and books. I also play guitar, but there are no plans to quit the day job just yet...
