Thanks for taking a look around my site.
I am a freelance writer and commissioning editor.
For the past two years, my work has focused on writing about global development, primarily for the Guardian’s Global Development Professionals Network. I’ve written and commissioned on tropical health and malaria, access to water and sanitation, humanitarianism and a number of other global development issues.
I have also written for a variety of other desks at the Guardian (Cities, Sustainable Business, Social Care), as well as the Telegraph and Smart Villages.
How I got here…
I started my professional journalism career as the assistant editor for the Guardian’s Live Better Challenge, after various internships and work experience placements at the Northern Echo, the Kentish Express, Gateway to Africa, The South African, and Smithsonian Magazine.
I have a Bachelors degree from the University of Sheffield and a Masters degree from the University of Kent. I speak English, French, a little Italian and an even smaller amount of Swahili.
