BIO   Lucy is an experienced multimedia journalist and...

Lucy is an experienced multimedia journalist and filmmaker whose work centres on migration, conflict and climate and has been published in The Guardian, The Sunday Times, Glamour, CNN and The New Humanitarian, among others.

After graduating from the University of Bristol with a first-class honours degree in History – writing a dissertation on the Rwandan genocide – she studied media law, shorthand and reporting with the NCTJ and worked as a senior reporter and acting editor of a press agency, covering breaking news, crime and courts for the national press in London.

She has reported from the frontlines of the conflict in eastern Ukraine, filmed in the ancient city of Petra, Jordan, and taken the Trans-Siberian Railway across three countries.

Her film work encompasses directing, editing and producing videos for magazines and clients including Canon. She has directed, shot, stitched and edited VR films for DHL, Xbox and Vodafone, writes and edits for NGOs including Save the Children UK and produces documentaries for Italian national television.  

Growing up between cultures has led to an interest in exploring identity and she published her first narrative non-fiction bookThe Exiled – in 2023, exploring the generational legacy of forced migration, inspired in part by her family history.

Lucy is a member of the NUJ, the Frontline Freelance Register, The Society of Authors, Women in Journalism and the Women's History Network.

She has been a mentor with The Second Source's 2019 and 2020 mentorship scheme, is a 2023 Women in Journalism mentee and has volunteered with investigative journalism project The Citizens.

She's represented by Broo Doherty at DHH Literary Agency.
