Jade is a London-based creative and academic writer. Her writing explores topics including black women and relationships, black British culture and the black British working-class experience.

In 2005, Jade began releasing chapters of her seminal work, Keisha The [Da] Sket which she had begun in the same year, aged thirteen. Beginning on the platform formerly known as Piczo, and shared among young people, Keisha The Sket went on to become a viral modern classic of black British culture, pioneering both online serialisation and viral content, as well as youth-authored youth experience.

Keisha The Sket has since been acquired by #Merky Books and will be published October 2021.

Jade is one half of The Echo Chamber podcast which explores the politics of existing whilst black and working-class.
