I'm a freelance journalist, broadcaster and occasional DJ based in London, specialising in music, pop culture and global nightlife.

My work has appeared in The New York Times, all over the Guardian, Observer New Review, The Times, The Independent, Q, NME, Dazed, i-D, Vice, Stylist, Mr Porter, Mixmag, The Quietus, BBC Music and beyond. I present a monthly show on Worldwide FM, where I pretend I am the millennial answer to Kirsty Young.

Prior to going freelance, I was the Deputy Editor at arts and entertainment magazine the Guardian Guide and the Clubbing Editor at Time Out London. I've gone on the razz with Idris Elba, shoe-shopping with Queens of the Stone Age, partied with a holographic pop star and co-hosted radio shows with Stewart Lee, Neneh Cherry, Bobby Gillespie and Matthew Herbert.

I like to interview people in front of a live audience and have presented Q&As with excellent people like Annie Lennox, Haim, The Black Madonna and Nina Kraviz, as well as an awards ceremony, The Oram Awards, celebrating women in electronic music. You can see me interviewing Christine & The Queens in the 2018 Apple Music documentary about her album, Chris.

Each year I oversee a fundraising event called Rumble In The Jumble, which has raised over £100,000 for Oxfam's projects in the DRC, Myanmar and its Refugee Appeal, and has featured donations from Kate Moss, Elton John, Florence Welch, Noel Gallagher, Mark Ronson and more.

Currently, I am working on a podcast series called The Last Bohemians.
