Journalist, BBC Newsbeat


I’m a journalist working for BBC Newsbeat.

Before July 2018, I was a freelancer, writing mostly for BBC Newsbeat and the Guardian.

Up until June 2017, I was a commissioning editor of Guardian Students. At the moment, I write for BBC Newsbeat, BBC Radio 1/1Xtra’s news service for 16 to 25-year-olds. I also worked for the G2 and Guardian Opinion editorial teams. Judge Rinder once threatened to sue me.
