I am an author, film director, blogger, journalist and arts critic. I live in the Home Counties with my two children.
My grand passion is freedom of expression and it is this that drives my diverse love of the arts and media. Originally a fashion journalist, I now write about parenting, the arts, disability and deaf issues, and over the years have contributed to Vogue, Esquire, The Observer, The Independent, BLOOM, New Zealand Style, The Huffington Post, British Deaf News and Disability Arts Online, among many others.
My latest film, LISTEN, EVEN WHEN YOUR HEART IS CRYING, a 28′ documentary about grief from a Deaf person’s perspective produced by Neath Films in association with the BSLBT, was released on Film4, The Community Channel, and online to widespread acclaim on 5th January 2015, and is presently being submitted to film festivals all over the world. You can see the film here.
