Writing Samples

Apart from design, I also do a bit of writing! I write mostly about film and music, but I’ve also written on art, theatre, and technology here and there (as well as a very ~ spicy ~ piece about the royals). In 2017, I edited and wrote for my student publication Honi Soit, and this year I’ve freelanced for publications like Junkee and VICE.
