A bit more about me
After working as an academic researcher/writer and secondary school teacher in inner-London comprehensive schools for 12 years, I set up my own business as a Copy-editor and Social Media Consultant in 2019.
Since launching, I’ve worked with an eclectic and marvellous mix of podcast hosts, entrepreneurs, small business owners, property developers, autism organisations, educational institutions, course providers, coaches, publishers, academics, journals and news outlets.
I am also a West London mum to six-year-old twins, Che (boy) and Rio (girl), and I am *always* spreading awareness of Autism Spectrum Condition and neurodiversity.
My professional background
After obtaining a Bachelor’s degree from Kingston University in Ethnomusicology, I completed a Master’s degree in Cultural Theory and Politics, followed by a Post-Graduate Certificate in Secondary Education at Roehampton University.
I am a founding member of an academic research group established by Gothenburg and Birzeit Universities and have published my research in a book entitled Palestinian Music and Song: Expression and Resistance Since 1900, as well as on JSTOR.
I have spoken at several conferences and have been interviewed by news outlets, such as Reuters, Voice of America and BBC World News by Zainab Badawi (click here to watch). My writing has featured in The Middle East in London, The Youth Times and This Week in Palestine and has been published in a book by Indiana University Press. Read here.
My background as a secondary school teacher equipped me with the skills to create done-for-you, visually appealing resources for businesses and podcasters with clear copy and design to perfectly convey your message and ethos. My teaching experience also taught me to manage and juggle large workloads, communicate clearly and effectively, work to very tight, and often unexpected, deadlines while maintaining a sharp sense of humour!
