About me

I am am an Entertainment Editor, writer and interviewer with fourteen years' experience.

 

I am currently Deputy Editor at British Airways' High Life magazine, the in-flight magazine distributed on all BA flights worldwide, with a monthly readership of 3.8 million. I commission and edit all the features in the magazine, as well as working with the client on content and partnerships.

 

Before that, I was Entertainment Director at GLAMOUR UK, a role I was in for seven years and where I was responsible for forward planning and booking the magazine's covers as well as interviewing the talent, and writing and editing all the entertainment content in the magazine.

I also oversaw all of the entertainment content on Glamour's digital platform, glamour.com, including commissioning and editing copy by our celebrity columnist Fearne Cotton, and our film and TV contributors.

The annual Glamour Women of the Year Awards were a key part of my role, securing the winners to attend on the night of the event, as well as shooting and interviewing them for the multi-page winners' portfolio that appeared in the July issue.

In 2003 I started my career at the BBC's teen magazine Dare before taking up staff positions at In Style UK. In 2007 I moved to Los Angeles to be a freelance entertainment journalist, and wrote cover stories, features and interviews for magazines including: Marie Claire, Grazia, Stylist, In Style, Nylon Guys, Frankie, Now, Dolly, Sugar, Company, and Women's Fitness. In 2010 I moved back to the UK where I became Entertainment Editor of Glamour. My interview portfolio can be viewed on my homepage.
