My reporting has been published in local newspapers (Billericay Gazette, Brentwood Gazette, Billericay Resident); specialist industry websites (RideRater, Theme Park Tourist, Airgates Attraction News); and literature blogs (ThatLitSite, RoaldDahlFans).
As well as these, I am currently the News Editor of SCAN, and a writer for Three Piers Media.
I was selected by the British Council to attend an all-expenses paid conference for Young Journalists in Glasgow.
I was selected by Lancaster University to travel to Chennai, India (expenses-paid) to work with the media team of the WBCSD. More here.
I attended a Channel 4 training day in London, alongside the NUS and Amnesty International.
I was interviewed on 2 national and several regional BBC Radio Stations as an expert after writing freelance articles about The Smiler crash.
