EY-VA SHY-NA HOP-GOOD
Born in south London, my parents moved our family to rural North Yorkshire at the start of my teens. I survived five formative years of village life by sneaking into every gig I could get to, writing books, zines and blogs and planning parties.
Finally, at 18, I turned up to the wrong degree at Goldsmiths but decided American Literature would do nicely. After graduating in 2010, I wrote a novel (unpublished, naturally) and began writing fiction for Oh Comely. I spent four years as editor and then creative director of an online news start-up before leaving in 2015 to focus on freelance writing for a whole bunch of places I love, including my vegan food and travel site Guac and Roll, which I ran for six years.
Now, home is north London. I work on communcations, marketing and editorial for Village Underground in Shoreditch and EartH in Dalston. I also run marketing and communications for vegan street food business Club Mexicana and take on extra freelance work for clients on an ad-hoc basis. I wrote the weekly trends and features for Urban Junkies for two years and am looking to build on that trend analysis with future comissions.
I like writing about memory, travel, friendships, music, love, arts, technology, food (always food) and all the stuff that requires a bit of perspective.
I like sparky ideas, late nights and above all, making it happen.
