I am a freelance reporter and writer specialising in cycling, sport, adventure and travel.
After gaining my A-Levels I spent four years attempting to forge a career as a professional cyclist, living in Belgium and racing across Europe while studying the arts and social sciences with the Open University, before embarking on my current career path.
A few months freelancing for various national print and online media outlets gave an experience into reportage, but in March 2014 I joined Dennis Publishing in London as a staff writer at Cyclist magazine, which afforded the luxury of a broader range of styles, from short news pieces to long-form analyses and narratives.
My work has taken me around Europe and the UK, and provided the opportunity and experience of interviewing the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, the winner of the 2014 Tour de France, Vincenzo Nibali, and the president of cycling’s world governing body (the UCI), Brian Cookson.
Now, after almost a year at Dennis, I’m opting to to pursue more of a freelancer’s career once again, with the aim of broadening my capabilities beyond the remit of cycling and cycle sport a contributory factor in the decision.
