My career history spans marketing, PR and social media management for clients including Sony Music, TK Maxx and Twentieth Century Fox. This industry was fast-paced, fun and hugely rewarding but I couldn't ignore my desire to write. I'm now delighted to be pursuing a career as a freelance writer, a job which allows me to be endlessly curious. My love of beautiful interiors, seeking out new designer/makers and spending hours choosing the perfect cushion has led me to focus my writing on the homes and interiors world. I regularly contribute to  91 Magazine, and have also written for Heart Home Magazine. I have also been a contributor to the popular site, Houzz - writing monthly stories for them on a wide range of topics. You can see my profile and read these stories here. I've recently joined the brilliant team at one of my most well-loved sites, This Is Your Kingdom.

You can see more publications I've written for below.


Aside from my freelance writing career, I have also worked with some incredible brands as part of Gathered Cheer. These include: 

Farrow & Ball | Loaf | Laura Ashley | JING Tea | Habitat | Homebase | House of Fraser | West Elm | Rose & Grey | Lindor | The White Company | Etsy 


Having assisted on magazine photo shoots as a props and styling assistant, I have been well and truly bitten by the styling bug. Whether I'm assisting a stylist on set, or styling my own parties at home, my desire is always to create  something which is fresh and inspiring but always achievable. Nothing brings me joy like rooting around in thrift shops, looking for beautiful new {old!} props to style and photograph. You can see a few of these vignettes popping up on my blog and my Instagram feed. 


Since I have a solid grounding in digital PR and marketing, I'm delighted to be able to work with clients on freelance social media projects. Currently, I'm working with the gorgeous style-led stationery store, Quill London
