Hello 👋, I'm Kim. 

I was Deputy Editor at Yahoo Lifestyle from 2012-2015 and went freelance in 2016, writing for publications including: Yahoo, BBC Worldwide, National Geographic, The Times, The Sun, Cosmopolitan, Elle, Grazia, Refinery29 and Women's Health. 

I'm a writer first, passionate about words and what order they go in - with the aim of creating articles that are not just informative and well-researched, but are a delight to read. (You've got to aim high, right?)

I came of age as a journalist during a peculiar time for the profession, studying its unchanging principles (during an MA at Goldsmiths), just as the entire media landscape was fundamentally changing.

My first jobs were in print but I quickly migrated online, where I experienced first hand the ups and downs of online content - and diversified my skills as I went. It goes without saying, SEO and social strategy are fully integral to anything I write online, and I speak conversational HTML.

As a former commissioning editor, I know what really annoys editors (or at least what used to annoy me). And I understand what they're looking for (sparkling, clean-as-a-whistle copy, that hits the brief, the deadline and the word count). 

I'm available for features commissions, op-eds, interviewing, long reads and investigative pieces.

My specialisms are travel, parenting and health (physical and emotional), but after 10 years working in women's media and ents, I can turn my hand to pretty much anything you need. I'm also happy to cover editorial shifts, previous working at IPC and Hearst and News UK.
