Press Insights & Inquiries 

I'm the founder and head analyst at Loose Threads, a media company known for its in-depth analysis at the intersection of consumer, retail and commerce. There's also a podcast, in addition to projects that track bankrupt retailers, Amazon's growing private label brands and more.

If you're covering these industries, I'm happy to talk through or provide insights on anything in the following areas, which I’ve studied and written about extensively. Feel free to get in touch

  • Shifting away from a discount-driven world
  • The destruction of independent retailers in local towns across the nation

The fast fashion takeover
