I’m a writer and editor based in Madrid. I specialise in consumer trends, art and design, music, travel, and cuisine, and have  written for a number of online and print publications including: The Wire, The Guardian, ANA’s in-flight magazine, Wingspan, The Japan Times and Damn Magazine. My formative years were spent as a journalist in Japan, covering a wide range of weird and wonderful subjects from giant insect battles to augmented reality apps. As a blogger for Japan Times, I kept up with rapidly changing trends and this work led to being consulted by both National Geographic and the BBC on attitudes towards sexuality in contemporary Japan.

Alongside journalism, I’ve done a variety of sub-editing work for both British and Japanese publications, including The Wire, Harper’s Bazaar, Decanter, and The Japan Times. I’m currently the assistant editor for Hiragana Times, a bilingual magazine aimed at students of the Japanese language. My duties include copy editing, writing headlines, and some translation. In addition to my regular duties, I suggested and was put in charge of creating the current style guide for the magazine.

In my free time I write The Making of Madrid, a blog about the history of my adoptive city. I also like to make stories up. You can read one of my published short stories here.
