About Me


I’m a visiting lecturer at the University of Winchester (BSc Geography) and Winchester School of Art (MA Design Management). Prior to this I was a Research Officer/Fellow at the University of Southampton where I also completed my PhD in Human Geography in 2015. I’ve recently started a part-time MA in Higher Education at the University of Surrey.

I started my blog in 2010 as an ethical fashion blog, but it has since expanded to cover all aspects of ethical living, health and sustainability, with a bit of academic life thrown in too. In the past, I have done freelance writing, blogging and social media management for various brands and retailers and was a founding contributor to the Oxfam Fashion blog. I’ve been featured in the Guardian for my work on ethical fashion within the University where I’ve worked closely with Sustainability Action team for three years.
