About me

I studied journalism at The University of Sheffield and in my third year began writing Closer Oceans. I graduated and eventually travelled to Colombia to report hard news, writing investigative features for my project on migration, the law failing individuals and those with nothing in my generation. The project is called ‘Outcast and Inalienable’ with reference to those living at the fringes of society. Despite it bombing financially and meaning my return back to the UK sooner than expected, I had time to finish Closer Oceans in that window while working on a banana and coffee farm.
