Trespass Magazine

Trespass Magazine was my baby, launched at the end of 2008 as a reaction to the lack of quality, insightful and intelligent writing platforms for readers and writers in their early 20s. Under my leadership, its audience grew to an average of 50,000 views a month. An archive of my writing, which spanned travel, beauty, food, interviews, music and op-eds for Trespass Magazine, can be found here.
