About me:

I work as a freelance journalist, mostly at ITN making current affairs documentaries. I can also be found writing about labour rights and the fashion industry for Guardian, Al Jazeera, i-D, and the iPaper. This work has taken me to Bangladesh, Kenya, Morocco, and to the Topshop warehouses in Solihull.

My next book FOOT WORK - What Your Shoes Are Doing To The World will be published by Weidenfeld & Nicholson, a division of Orion, on 5th March 2020.

In the past I have worked for CND and as a documentary maker at the Islam Channel. Media appearances include BBC Breakfast to discuss the Rana Plaza factory collapse, and BBC Woman’s Hour with Jeni Murray.

Stitched Up events include the Shakespeare & Co. Bookshop in Paris, lectures at Kings College London & Central St. Martins; Barbican panel events, TRAID symposiums, the For Books Sake online book club...plus zine fairs, conferences and more festivals!

I live and work in London and I have a BSc in International Relations from LSE and a Masters in Broadcast Journalism from Cardiff University for which I received an Outstanding Academic Achievement Award.
