I have been writing about international film for various print and online publications for well over a decade, since falling in love with film after first catching sight of Gone With the Wind on TV.
While studying cinema at Leicester University, I became the film editor for its student paper. After graduating, I got a job at the UK's longest running movie mag Film Review where I worked my way up from producation assistant to becoming the first female editor in its history. Following Film Review, I joined film industry publication movieScope where, during my five years as editor, I oversaw its evolution from niche magazine to respected international resource. I was nominated for Editor of the Year by the British Society of Magazine Editors for my work on movieScope.
As a freelance writer, I have written about film and culture for a variety of magazines and websites, including BBC Online, Little White Lies, Filmstar and Kodak's In Camera and The List, and my particular passion is promoting the equal representation of women throughout all aspects of the industry, both in front of and behind the camera. I am a member of various professional bodies, including London Film Critics Circle, Women in Film and TV and Alliance of Women Film Journalists.
I am currently in the process of updating and streamlining Roll Credits.
