I’m an experienced financial journalist and editor, currently news editor of Citywire's New Model Adviser website. Key skills include breaking exclusive news, investigative journalism, presenting videos and podcasts, and editing.


I have made frequent radio appearances, including as a regular guest on TimesRadio's Early Breakfast business bulletin and on BBC Radio 4's PM  show.


I won the NextGen Financial Journalist of the Year Award in 2020 and HeadlineMoney’s B2B Rising Star of the Year award in 2021, and I have been shortlisted for ten other journalism awards.

I have freelanced for numerous publications including HuffPost US, Medium and Mouthy Money. I am open to commissions for freelance corporate or journalistic work.
