About me

Gender FEMALE
Occupation Writer, music critic, teacher
Introduction I started writing for the underground cultural press in 1987, namely Buzz magazine, a rag which spawned a Nirvana press officer, an editor of an awarding winning magazine, and a generous pinch of photographers and writers who gravitated towards the national music press of the 90s, New Musical Express and Melody Maker. I was a weekly writer for the Melody Maker from 1989-2000 and moved into Online journalism as Live Editor in 2011-2014 for www.thegirlsare.com. I write for various publications with regard music + articles of interest. I've always written short stories which are stashed on the internet (clue). I teach at the University of Creative Arts and am interested in the changing role of the music journalist. I am also a school book author and private tutor. I continue to support women musicians and women in the music business and now also perform, as spoken word meets stand up meets Jackonary. @NgaireRuth
