Has Written For: POP, Harper's BAZAAR, Drapers, Dazed & Confused, Complex, Time Out London, FHM, High Snobiety

Rule: Get out there.

"Being a freelance writer is an incredibly privileged occupation in many senses, not least because you only need a laptop and Internet connection to work anywhere in the world. I'm not saying that you should book a one-way ticket to Tanzania to be a successful writer, but it's definitely a good idea to get out into the world rather than sitting on the sofa in your sweatpants all day (we all do it). Exploring will freshen your perspective, renew your focus and—most crucially—enable you to discover the stories that no one else has."

Favorite Pieces and Projects:
