I'm a London-based feature writer and editor. If I'm not tapping away at a keyboard, I'm probably taking something out of the oven. Or eating. 

I studied English at Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge (2004-2007), and then did an MA in Creative Writing at the University of Manchester (2008-09).

I've written for the Telegraph, Country Life, Time Out, ES, Waitrose Food, Stylist, Sainsbury's Magazine, Eater London, Wired, Metro, The Jackal, Noble Rot, Eventbrite and The Erotic Review. As well as writing about food, I take pictures of it: my photography has appeared in Time Out, Sainsbury’s Magazine, Eater London, Eventbrite and the Telegraph. And the brands I've worked with include Deliveroo, Cuisinart and Lurpak Cook's Range. Before going freelance I was Special Reports Editor at the Daily Telegraph, and Deputy Features Editor of Country Life. 

I also write fiction – I was shortlisted for the 2019 Lucy Cavendish Fiction Prize, and won The London Magazine 2016 Short Story Competition.
