Jessica Cargill Thompson

Jessica Cargill Thompson is a freelance writer and editor. In 2007, a mini midlife crisis prompted her to leave a great job as deputy editor of Time Out London in order to freelance, try new things, and be a better parent. Thanks to the recession, this proved to be a bad idea. In October 2009 she started the blog How to Be Unemployed in a White Collar Way. She has edited several books for Time Out, and lives in south London with her husband and two children.
