About

I am currently in post as a Communications Manager with The Open University’s Learning and Teaching Innovation portfolio. I have previously worked in Communications at The University of Manchester’s Global Development Institute, and The University of Sheffield’s Institute for International Development.

I launched and ran Impolitikal, an online zine with a social, political focus between 2014 and 2018, and was commissioned to co-edit Don’t dream it’s over: Reimagining journalism in Aotearoa New Zealand (Freerange Press, 2016).

In a past life I interviewed celebrities like Lady Gaga, Steven Spielberg, and Yoko Ono; wrote about travel, lifestyle and coffee; and did my best to create encouraging content for a website for teenage girls.

I have a Master of Science in Poverty and Development from The University of Manchester’s Global Development Institute.
