“Seek out argument and disputation for their own sake; the grave will supply plenty of time for silence.”
— Christopher Hitchens
“That truth should be silent I had almost forgot.”
— Enobarbus (Anthony and Cleopatra, 2.2)
I’m a 22 year-old who has written on topics ranging from religion to the environment, celebrity culture to drug legalisation. My work has been published in The Economist, The Freethinker and The Humanist, as well as on Ophelia Benson’s Butterflies and Wheels. I’m now a student blogger for The Huffington Post, I wrote comment pieces regularly for The Daily Opinion and for Away Games, and have recently written for The Cambridge Student, Varsity and The Tab. I was named ‘Three Rivers Young Journalist of the Year’ for my article, ‘Up in Flames’, in 2010, and have interviewed the likes of journalists Johann Hari and Peter Hitchens, Sir Nicholas Hytner, David Miliband and philosopher A.C. Grayling. I founded my college newspaper, The TitBit, in early 2013, and edited it until I left in 2015.
