I live in London and write about politics and international current affairs for xoJane.com. Before this, I made TV shows, wrote for newspapers and worked in Government. The daughter of hippies, I grew up in a haze of music and politics. I now love the Welcome to Night Vale podcast, the Jazz24.org radio station and have an unexpected, growing, appreciation of commercial country music. I also work as a strategy, communications and political consultant and I write in a thoroughly personal capacity.
