I've been working as a finance journalist for 14 years since graduating with an MA in Modern History from the University of St Andrews.


I worked in-house for eight years at a number of national publications including six years at MoneyWeek and two years as the deputy editor of Moneywise magazine.


Since 2013 I've worked as a freelance financial journalist writing regularly for The Sunday Times, The Times, Moneywise, MoneyWeek, LoveMoney and many more publications.


I also regularly discuss personal finance stories on national radio stations including BBC Radio Two and Share Radio.


‚ÄčIn 2016 I was named runner up Financial Freelance Journalist of the Year at the Santander Media Awards.
