more about me...

I am a London-based writer. Currently, Contributing Editor to major UK architecture/design magazine Blueprint, columnist for the Journal of Wild Culture.

I have written for magazines covering contemporary and twentieth century art, real estate, technology, and music. From 2007, I established regular London art scene coverage for hip London site le cool. More recently, I have contributed to Phaidon's architectural encyclopedia and had a year's residency as columnist on the Royal institute of British Architects Journal RIBAJ in 2013/14. I instigated and co-curated Lisbon Open House 2012.

 I am the author of three non-fiction books about skyscrapers and urbanism. 

I graduated from the University of London in Physics and Astrophysics and have worked in software publishing and club promotion. I have experience in news analysis, PR copywriting, speechwriting, conducting tours and media training. I have  also been an exhibited artist and an actor. And I know three jokes.
