Hey, I'm Jack.
I'm a freelance writer, editor and multimedia journalist from Northern England – now based in London. My work focuses heavily on youth culture, fringe subcultures and music – but I have experience covering a number of fields: from fashion to digital culture, technology to politics.
I've produced long-form features for online & print magazines distributed across Europe and North America. I've also written branded editorials for Dr Martens, Paris Men's Fashion Week and Calvin Klein.
I'm always open for commissions – if you're an editor looking for someone who can produce clean copy to a tight deadline drop me an email.
