I’m a London-based freelance writer and editor specialising in music, culture and travel.
Currently I'mGreece & Ireland market editor @Skyscanner, contributing articles, revamping content, upskilling freelancers and optimising content for SEO. You'll also find my work on Skyscanner UK, Beautiful Bizarre, Europe Up Close, Culture Trip, Athinorama Travel and more. I love taking readers on a journey - into a leftfield music experience, or a scenic Arizona desert road (seemingly to nowhere).
Apart from writing travel and culture features, since 2015 I've also been polishing up my skills as a copywriter, particularly music, film & TV content for a major music & video streaming platform. Taking into account the listening habits of a global audience, swerving swiftly according to client feedback and quick turnaround are key here.
Rewind a few years back, I was a full-time music editor at the long-standing Athinorama weekly in Athens, Greece. There I got the chance to interview an array of artists - on the phone, via email or in person - with Velvet Underground vet John Cale, Bjork, Rufus Wainwright, Lydia Lunch, Marilyn Manson, Tricky, Beirut and Sonic Youth's Kim Gordon, as well as director Paul Thomas Anderson. Apart from sharpening my communication skills, I contributed features, news and listings - as well as travel and culture articles for several other publications under the umbrella of Desmi Publishing. For a while I also contributed content, fact-checked and updated listings for the Rhodes and Corfu travel guides.
When I'm not writing I hop around good ol' London Town, looking for intriguing exhibitions (Diane Arbus!, Cindy Sherman!) and favourite (not so) hidden corners to write about (Word on the Water!,the World’s Most Curious Cocktail Bar!). Or I watch movies back-to-back - pretty much the only time I turn my overworked stereo off.
I'll jump at the chance to write about the things that inspire me – from journeys to the depths of the Indian jungle to a Chromatics gig at the Roundhouse. Drop me an email for commissions. Or just to exchange a few good tips on where to go next!
