I’m one of the Editors-in-Chief of The Glasgow Guardian 23/24, overseeing the entirety of the newspaper’s print and online output.

What I cover

Having previously edited the newspaper’s Culture section, I specialise in arts and entertainment journalism. I’ve covered the Booker Prize, Glasgow Film Festival, and protest art at COP26. I contribute extensively to our Comment, Profile and Lifestyle sections, and previously won highly commended for Best Lifestyle Piece at the SPA National Awards in 2022.

My background

I’m a third year Law and Politics (LLB) student. I am committed to social justice, and previously conducted research on the relationship between Gypsy, Roma and Traveller (GRT) communities and national housing policy. I currently intern in the Scottish Parliament. In my spare time I read avidly, watch far too much reality TV, and (occasionally) play the piano.
