Hi, I'm Anna and I’m a writer and editor. 

In the ten years I’ve worked as a journalist, I’ve written and edited for VICE, the Guardian, Quartz, the Atlantic and others. I cover music, youth culture, mental health and social justice. My writing portfolio is here.

I currently work at VICE as the news editor of THUMP, the electronic music and culture channel. I previously worked at the Guardian, both in the US and my hometown of London, for three years. I'm a graduate of Durham University and Columbia Journalism School.

I live in Brooklyn, New York.
