Since June 2019, I have been the first editor-in-chief of Penguin books, overseeing a new editorial direction for the publisher's website and social media channels. In July 2020, this including editing a book of essays reflecting on the Covid-19 crisis written by leading authors including Malorie Blackman, Philip Pullman and Lee Child.

 

An editor and writer with over ten years of experience, I was previously digital editor of Esquire magazine, features editor of BuzzFeed UK and culture editor of The Huffington Post UK. I continue to write culture, lifestyle and travel features for numerous publications including the Guardian, Telegraph, Times, Harper's Bazaar, GQ, Departures and many more.

I have won and been shortlisted for various awards, including BSME Digital Editor of the Year. I have made multiple TV and radio appearances and have worked as a freelance digital media consultant.
