Lulu Le Vay started out as deputy editor of mouthy fanzine Sleazenation in the mid-90s, propelling her into a busy career as a music and lifestyle writer for The Face, i-D, Jockey Slut and Xray through to the Guardian Guide, The Independent and Observer.
Alongside writing she also works in PR, having sprinkled her magic media touch over Lady Sovereign, Jazzie B, The Jolly Boys, Guilty Pleasures and The Big Issue as well as having spent several years working in artist management.
This blog Gymwatch! has led to her contributing guest columns and features to revered fitness magazine Runner’s World and Cycling Active magazine. The hungover music and lifestyle journalist has finally found her voice in the most surprising of places: fitness.
Lulu is currently Head of Social Media for London gyms Gymbox, is a music consultant for Psycle London, runs music journalism courses in East London, is a freelance sub-editor and copywriter, and DJs at various 80’s electro/disco soirées around London. She’s also a PhD candidate (Sociology) at Goldsmiths, London.
Oh, and Lulu has also run four marathons and nine half marathons – currently retired.
