Hey all! Thanks so much for dropping by. For those of you who don't know, I'm a freelance political commentator and Assistant Editor of new media outlet EvolvePolitics. I am beginning an MA in Political Communication at Cardiff University in September 2017.

I started commentating in 2016, and has since become a regular contributor at The Independent. Additionally, I am making my mark on both sides of the Atlantic - contributing to a plethora of online outlets including but not limited to The Hill, The Huffington Post, Politics.co.uk, Daily Kos, The Morning Star and Novara Media. In doing so, I received a mixture of adoration and disdain from America's favourite right-wing halfwit Rush Limbaugh. Although Limbaugh suggested I'm is "delusional" (pot calling the kettle black, perhaps) - he also admitted my coverage of Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary was "instructive and eye-opening."

I am also a regular pundit on Russia Today, having first appeared as a guest on George Galloway's 'Sputnik' to discuss the #LabourCoup, and then several times on RT UK News. I recently appeared on BBC Radio 4's 'Week in Wesminster' to debate the 'war on fake news' as well as 'The Media Show' with Amol Ranjan to discuss the rise of EvolvePolitics over the 2017 General Election.

After witnessing the resurgence of left-wing politics in both America and the United Kingdom in the form of Bernie Sanders and Jeremy Corbyn, I was compelled to make the transformation from an independent blogger with a tiny WordPress reach to a fully fledged contributor with a national audience. I take a strong interest in the Labour Party under Jeremy Corbyn, critiquing largely hawkish Western foreign policy, as well as challenging the British and American centre-ground on their ideas - that after 2008, are intellectually bankrupt and belong in the dustbin of history.

As Assistant Editor of EvolvePolitics, I am part of one of the fastest growing media outlets in the United Kingdom. EvolvePolitics has been featured in articles by Buzzfeed, The Guardian, the Financial Times and many more - examining the impact of new media organisations and social media on Britain's political discourse. I was also one of the very few commentators who predicted a hung parliament on June 8th, citing the unparalleled anger over bread and butter issues that was galvanised by Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party.

I am currently in the process of starting a new vlog called 'Pint & Politics'. While I have some equipment already due to previous contributions, reaching this goal will allow me to not only get everything I need but to produce the best political content on YouTube right now.
