I'm a journalist, editor, DJ and radio rambler based in east London. I am currently the Deputy Editor at the Guardian Guide and a regular contributor to the Guardian's culture section, Observer Magazine, NME and Time Out. My articles on music, nightlife and popular culture have also appeared in/on, The Independent, Q, Evening Standard, The Quietus, Dazed & Confused and BBC Music. 

Prior to being freelance, I was Time Out London's Clubbing Editor for four years. I also managed and programmed Hackney micro-radio station London Fields Radio between 2010-2013

As a DJ, I've played at festivals like Bestival, Field Day and End of the Road, alternative parties White Mischief and Torture Garden, and for events such as Kensington Palace's summer ball and Somerset House's Film4 screenings. My corporate DJ clients past and present include VICE, H&M, and Monkey Shoulder.

In run The Music Circle – a division of Annie Lennox's Circle initiative – and manage their main fundraiser, Rumble in the Jumble. 2013's event at Bethnal Green Working Men's Club raised £16,000 for Oxfam's work with women in the DRC; its second at Oval Space in 2014 raised £27,000.
