The Culturist aims to inspire readers and promote culture. The blog combines my own views and experiences throughout the worlds of film, music and travel – plus everything in between. Here you will find compelling stories, insightful reviews, handy tips and personal tales from over the years.

Over the last two years I decided to throw caution to the wind and do the things that make me happy. Whether that’s discovering new music, travelling the world or chasing my dream of becoming a screenwriter, there’s no shortage of things to talk about!

Regular features on the website include film reviews, travel tales (places I’ve visited and the things I’ve seen), music playlists plus loads more.
