I'm a critic, journalist & scriptwriter based in New York, where I write about current affairs and American culture.
As a freelance journalist, I have written for media outlets in Europe and the US. My work has appeared in the New York Times, the Guardian, Salon.com, the Huffington Post, the Chronicle of Higher Education, Prospect magazine, Forbes Woman, the Daily Telegraph, the Erotic Review, the Irish Times, the Irish Sunday Independent, the Irish Echo and the Irish Voice. I write a regular business feature for the Irish Echo, which is not available online. And I'm also a social media consultant and copyeditor for a range of clients - for more detail about those aspects of my portfolio, see here.
I sowed some wild oats before entering the field of journalism, completing a masters and a doctorate in ancient Greek literature at Oxford University. For couple of years I taught full-time at King's College London and I co-authored a book called The Philosopher's Banquet for Oxford University Press that came out last year.
Then, however, I decided to move into journalism. I got a scholarship to study cultural reporting and criticism at New York University and headed to New York, which is where I've stayed ever since.
