Writing and Journalism
I apply my interest in social justice and philosophy to writing about charities, urban communities, British multiculturalism, underground music and issues affecting young people in London.
My writing about society has appeared in publications including The Guardian, New Statesman, BBC and Prospect, and I have written extensively about UK underground music culture for publications such as Crack, FACT and Pitchfork. I have appeared on multiple broadcast channels such as BBC Radio 4, BBC London News and ITV News.
I’m writing a nonfiction book about life at Marcus Lipton Community Centre in Brixton, south London. I’m represented by Matthew Turner at Rogers, Coleridge & White.
My youth- and community-work experience lies in delivering mentoring programmes for young people in schools, youth clubs, community centres and prisons. I have worked for organisations including The Access Project, The Advocacy Academy, Spark Inside, Spiral, Franklin Scholars and Young Urban Arts Foundation.
I am founder and coordinator of Hero’s Journey, a group discussion and mentoring programme for teenage boys delivered at Marcus Lipton Community Centre in Brixton since September 2015.
