I love to put my personal knowledge of the vintage scene to practical use, writing for style and fashion publications such as The Chap and Vintage Life as well as more mainstream features for the Daily Telegraph or articles on collecting - like this piece on Bakelite for My Wiltshire or this one on antique hunting in Texas for the Financial Times.
Another personal interest that has spilled into my work is my lifelong passion for the film noir movies of the 1940s and 50s. After studying the genre to degree level, I began writing about various aspects of it, and have discussed it in publications as diverse as The Times, Telegraph, The Chap, Vintage Life and Spiked.
In a previous life as a singer I created an album of music around the genre's most fascinating stereotype, Noiresque: The Lonely Fate of the Femme Fatale. I later wrote and performed a show of the same name and curated an online project devoted to the subject.
