I am a writer and editor with interests in literature, art, film, intersectional feminism and representations of social class. Born and raised in Leeds, I worked in Paris for a short period and am now based in London.
For five years I worked in publishing, commissioning visual culture books with a radical edge. My titles included the recently released Roots and Culture: Cultural Politics in the Making of Black Britain by Eddie Chambers, Political Animals: The New Feminist Cinema by So Mayer, Queering Post-Black Art: Transforming African-American Identity After Civil Rights by Derek Conrad Murray and Other Cinemas: Politics, Culture and Experimental Film in the 1970s, edited by Sue Clayton and Laura Mulvey. I also established an artists’ moving image and experimental film list. Until recently, I was Deputy Editor at RA Magazine and an editorial director at the fledgling micro publisher, 3 of Cups Press. Currently, I am Production Editor at Sight & Sound.
As well as editing, I speak publicly and write on a freelance basis for publications including frieze, LRB, The White Review and TLS. If you’d like to discuss commissions or other projects, please do get in touch by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
