I am a writer and Zoology graduate with a wealth of experience in publications. I currently work for the Chelsea Magazine Company as Deputy Editor for Artists & Illustrators. My previous roles within the company included working across The English Garden, The English Home and Sailing Today.
I have worked extensively in both print and digital media, creating content strategies inspired by extensive consideration of analytics and target markets. I am well-versed in commissioning, editing and writing quality content, ensuring all work adheres to the brand’s values. I have been responsible for initiating many successful online content series and have communicated efficiently with our advertising team to maximise the monetisation of such endeavours.
I consider myself to be a very social person who works well as part of a team but whom also has the drive to thrive independently. In my spare time I write for TimeOut and am currently contributing towards a book on extreme wildlife with Future publishing as well as working on my first novel.
Having studied Zoology at the University of Southampton, I am fiercely passionate about wildlife and conservation, and particularly enjoy writing about bizarre animals. I have built up a vast network of industry contacts to assist me with my freelance features relating to travel and conservation. The perils of a desk job mean I greatly value my time outdoors and am a keen traveller and hiker, capturing wildlife photography along the way. (Instagram @rh.films)
In my career, I’ve been fortunate enough to work with a variety of titles including Artists & Illustrators, The English Garden, The English Home, TimeOut, Sailing Today, World of Animals, Playbuzz, My Beauty Matches, Stay Wild Swim and FRUK.
