I’m a writer and critic based in London.

I contribute regularly to The Economist, The Times Literary Supplement and The Spectator.

My work has also appeared in, among others, Wired, The Telegraph, New Scientist, The Los Angeles Review of Books, 3:AM, Boundless, New Welsh Review, The London Magazine and Wales Arts Review.

I’m thrilled by the possibilities of long-form journalism, and I have published features and essays about a wide variety of topics, including the politics of the climate crisis, the essay as the ideal literary form for troubled times, cultural desecration and war, and the £1.5bn illegal eel trade. I wrote about Britain’s generational housing crisis for Rife: Twenty-Stories from Britain’s Youth, published by Unbound.

I’m currently working on a book about holy islands and the climate crisis. It will explore sites of historic pilgrimage in an era of rising seas and political turbulence. Work from it has been excerpted in The Island Review, The Clearing and Dark Mountain, Issue 17.
