I’m a writer, copywriter and musician currently based in Manchester.

I write about music and culture, with pieces in publications including The Guardian, The Telegraph, The Face, Private Eye, Jazzwise, Huck Magazine, Bandcamp, Tribune, VAN Magazine, The Calvert Journal, GRAMMY, The Big Issue and many more.

I work as News Editor and Social Media Manager for London-based jazz and contemporary music label Whirlwind Recordings, where I also write copy for albums and press releases. Other copywriting clients include KD Schmid, Efpi Records, Manchester Wire, Olympias Music Foundation, Lydia Liebman Productions and Brownswood Recordings. I’ve written album blurbs for artists including Walter Smith III, Samara Joy, Chet Doxas, Marta Sanchez, Ivo Neame, Dr Dave Young and Secret Night Gang.

As a composer, I’ve collaborated with members of London Sinfonietta and Red Note Ensemble, and my work has been performed by Devon Philharmonic Orchestra, Ludlow English Song Festival, Manchester Contemporary Youth Opera, No Dice Collective and The Vonnegut Collective. I’m currently a member of Kantos Chamber Choir, and I graduated from the University of Manchester with a First Class (Hons) Degree in Music in July 2019, receiving the Hargreaves Prize for Aesthetics.
