I’m a freelance journalist and author based in London. These days, I write the US morning briefing for The Guardian. From 2012 to 2016 I was the Los Angeles correspondent for The Independent. Before that, I was a features writer and the paper’s diary editor. I’ve also contributed to Vogue, Radio TimesRefinery29ShortList, ES MagazineMr PorterThe Oldie and others.

I was nominated for a British Press Award in 2009 for a series of features I wrote about the Internet. Here’s some of my recent work, and a selection of greatest hits.

My first novel, Completion, was published in 2014 and longlisted for the Impac Dublin Literary Award. My second, Smoke Over Malibu, came out in January 2017.
