I’m a writer and photo editor based in New York, with a particular love of archival photography.
My writing has appeared in The Times, The New Yorker and Atlas Obscura. I've worked as a photo editor in London and New York, including at The New York Times, Atlas Obscura, Wallpaper* City Guides and Penguin Books. In 2019, as part of my role in the Archival Storytelling team at The Times,
I co-curated an exhibition of photographs from The Times’s archive at Photoville New York.
