I’m a senior journalist at BBC News, currently on a year-long career break studying for a masters degree in intellectual history.

Up until August 2022, I worked in news commissioning, working with journalists and programme editors on longform stories and investigations, with a particular emphasis on making every story cross-platform and accessible to a wide audience. My passion is making news for underserved audiences who have traditionally not seen themselves reflected in the media.

Before that, I spent the majority of my career writing and broadcasting at BBC Newsbeat, BBC Radio 1 & 1Xtra’s news service for 16 to 25-year-olds.

I’ve been a mentor for Arts Emergency and my university alumni network. I have given talks at various media conferences, including Well Told, the National Student Radio Conference and the Impact Media Conference.
