About me

I’m a writer and  journalist with a keen interest in history and politics. In July 2018, I graduated from the University of Kent, having studied an NCTJ accredited MA in Multimedia Journalism at Kent’s Centre for Journalism.  I was delighted to be awarded a Distinction for my efforts.

In September 2018, I started on the graduate scheme at MailOnline. Before commencing my role as a reporter, I worked for the Liverpool Echo for ten weeks, and then spent four weeks at the SWNS agency in Birmingham. I then returned to London in February 2019 to start in the MailOnline newsroom.

In July of 2021, I started a new role as MailOnline’s first ever History Correspondent. I had been doing the job on a trial basis since mid-January but it was very exciting to make the role official after a successful six months.

I’ve also written for the Daily Mail newspaper, the Daily Telegraph, the Kent Messenger, the Huffington Post as a blogger, and a number of student publications. As a student journalist, I interviewed both Alastair Campbell and Peter Hitchens and won an award for the former.

In the summer of 2017,  I completed a BA in History and Politics at the University of Sussex, graduating with first-class honours. During my second year at Sussex, I was the Editor of The Badger, Sussex’s weekly student newspaper. 

Outside of journalism and academia, I am a member of the trustee board of Young Lives vs Cancer (formerly CLIC Sargent), the national cancer charity for children and young people. My role involves the representation of the charity at public events, scrutiny of board documents, and the financial oversight of the charity. It has so far been an extremely rewarding experience, and I’m excited about my continual exposure to new and exciting challenges with this fantastic charity.
