WRITING

Once upon a time, I worked as an entertainment journalist, where I got to meet some really interesting people and share their stories with the rest of the world. I was also a TV columnist for 3 years, which meant I had every good reason to watch all the TV I wanted – you know, “for work”.

In 2016, I closed the book on all of that, but decided to leave some of my stuff up here anyway. Writing will always be my language and refuge, the best way I know to process my thoughts, feelings and life. So this is not the end. I’m not stopping, I’m simply looking for new stories to tell.
