Biography

I began my professional life as a trainee reporter for the Southend Evening Echo, landing my first national gig on Just 17 three years later. I then moved to TV Quick as deputy editor and was later head-hunted as launch Showbiz editor on Now. I was a commissioning editor at the Mirror, a culture and film writer for the Guardian and the Sydney Herald. I also wrote a weekly film blog about my life in LA for the Guardian and have made short films. I now write for various publications including OK!, Closer, Grazia and Woman's Own, as well as the Guardian. I also work regularly for two PR clients and I have been a guest lecturer in journalism at Winchester University.
