Reviews

I am an experienced reviewer and critic of books, theatre, film, exhibitions, and events.

Throughout 2019 and 2020, I worked as an arts critic for New Territory: I reviewed theatre, gallery exhibitions, and writers’ festival panels. In 2020, I also worked as a book reviewer, writing about new releases for ArtsHub.
