I have been writing about international film for various print and online publications for the past decade, and currently edit bi-monthly UK film mag movieScope. Dedicated to the craft of filmmaking and the art of cinema, it's a must-read whether you're a movie maker or film fan.
I have loved films ever since I saw Gone With the Wind on TV one Sunday morning, and while studying cinema at Leicester University I became a reviewer for the student paper, Ripple, taking over as Film Editor in my final year.
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. 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 am a member of the Alliance of Women Film Journalists and British Society of Magazine Editors.
I am currenly in the process of updating and streamling Roll Credits; apologies for any out of date content and thank you for your patience!
