My experience with journalism began in 2016. My first-ever published work (apart from work published in my school's annual magazine), was published in the Sunday Times newspaper. Since then I have written everything from holiday anecdotes, to book reviews, opinions, and profiles for a range of publications.
The Sunday Times
Since 2016 I have written a number of pieces for the Sunday Times, ranging from book reviews, to features, and even travel pieces.

In 2019 I began to explore writing about the advertising and PR industry through my work for Marklives.com.
In 2019 I devoted my writing primarily to my popular science website, Bite-sized Sci. Having majored in Zoology and Journalism I came to realise just how great the gap in understanding between science and its day-to-day relevance is. I created Bite-sized Sci to make the science that affects us and our planet every day more accessible to people who haven't studied science.
Through Bite-sized Sci I was able to push my writing abilities and explore everything from quick listicles to literary journalism and in-depth features, all while trying to make the science as easy to grasp as possible.
As my career has kicked off I've had to leave Bite-sized Sci behind, but I mention is here as a testament to the writing and the growth it afforded me.
