I’m a freelance writer, editor and podcaster. I write features, interviews, comment and reviews for a whole variety of publications, including the New Statesman, the i newspaper, Prospect, the Times, the Guardian, the London Review of Books blog, the New Humanist, the Millions, Total Politics and the New York Times. I’m primarily a cultural critic: I write about books, music, television, radio, podcasts, and films, as well as interviewing interesting people. You can read my recent work here.

I’m currently working on my first book, a work of narrative non-fiction about the Thames estuary, which will be published by Granta in spring 2019. Find out more about that here.

I also work as an editor, both in print and online, for magazines and newspapers. At the weekly UK politics and culture magazine the New Statesman, I was in charge of the website and social media strategy from 2012 to 2016.

Podcasting is a big part of my work. I run the podcast operation at the New Statesman, where I oversee four regular weekly shows and multiple one-off series. With my colleague Anna Leszkiewicz, I host the magazine’s pop culture podcast SRSLY, where I review books, TV and film on a weekly basis. I also provide editing help and script consultation, as well as advice on growing and audience and securing media coverage, for independent podcasts. Find out more about that here.

I run a weekly email newsletter and quarterly zine called No Complaints, featuring writing by me and people whose work I admire. Find out more here, support it on Patreon, or sign up using the form on the right.
