As the UK Communications Manager of the Nature Friendly Farming Network, I oversee broadcast and national media opportunities, including farming and trade press, and lead on digital and social media content. I'm responsible for increasing the network's profile in advocating for better policies for food, farming, nature and climate, including promoting best practices for farming to mitigate climate change, recover biodiversity loss and produce sustainable food.
As a freelance writer, I write about the environment, sustainability, creative living, design and food. My work has been published online and internationally in print, covering subjects far-ranging in tone and depth. From the murky underbelly of our digital tech dependence, to the ethics of avocado farming, to the emotional importance of Doc Martens - and everything in between.
My creative writing was long-listed in the Mogford Short Story Prize 2020 and I was a Young Writer Delegate for 2020 with the Irish Writer Centre & International Literature Festival Dublin.
