Biography:
I am a freelance film and television journalist with bylines at Den of Geek, Digital Spy, Film Stories and Little White Lies. I also write reviews and features for my site catherineonfilms.com. I have previously written for the The Times, the Picturehouse Cinemas blog, QX Magazine, UK Film Review and InSession Film and have appeared as a guest film critic on London Live's Friday night film show London Film Club (Freeview channel 8). Career highlights include meeting film critic Mark Kermode for an interview that won me a student award and writing a Den of Geek article about Wittertainment that was featured on Kermode and Mayo's Film Review on BBC Radio 5 Live. Meeting Simon Brew has been another highlight and an absolute pleasure, as he gave me my first writing job with Den of Geek and I look forward to contributing to his new venture - the Film Stories magazine.
