Writing

I’ve been writing about music since I was 15. I just love creating content!

My cover stories have appeared in titles like NME, Stylist, the Guardian Guide and Guardian G2, Shortlist, ES Magazine, Observer Music Monthly and Observer Magazine, The Face, Time Out, Melody Maker, Clash, Attitude, BEAT, Smash Hits, Notion and The Independent.

My work’s also appeared in Q, Vice, heat, GQ Style, The Fader, i-D, Observer New Review, The Times, Pitchfork, The Times, TIME, Noisey, The Telegraph and Esquire.

Greatest hits

To be frank I don’t know if these are actually my best things — in fact some of them definitely aren’t — but they all seem significant for one reason or another.
