My Work

I cover culture, health, lifestyle and politics for a variety of national and international publications, from The Guardian and The Independent to Vice and Euronews. I'm a regular writer at Verywell Mind and Healthline, contribute a semi-regular column for Scarleteen, and was formerly on the news team for The List. You can find my music coverage here.
