I am a freelance journalist who writes mainly, but not exclusively, about Jewish arts and culture. I am a film critic for The Jewish Chronicle and a regular contributor to The Times of Israel and the Forward newspapers. My work has appeared in the TLS, The Guardian, the TES magazine and The Jerusalem Post.

I have an MA in World Cinema from Birkbeck, University of London (2012-2014) where I specialised in Israeli film. I blogged about being a mature student – The Accidental Student – for The Huffington Post UK.

Prior to freelance writing, I was submissions editor for Haus Publishing but also worked independently with writers.

I have edited two published books: From the Edge of the World (Vallentine Mitchell, 2003), a compilation of letters and stories by Jewish refugees and The Sea of Azov (Five Leaves, 2009), a collection of short stories, published in association with the charity World Jewish Relief (WJR).
