Carmen Gray

Carmen Gray is a New Zealand-born writer. After jumping ship in the midst of a Fine Arts MA she spent six years hauling her worldly belongings between jobs in Moscow, Seoul, Prague and Buenos Aires. Then, after retraining as a journalist she settled in London, where she has slightly subdued her wanderlust (but not yet her aversion to acquiring home decor) by working as a freelance film critic for Sight & Sound and Total Film, as well as Dazed.
