About me

I'm a freelance travel writer, editor and general content all-rounder. With four years of experience in editorial travel publishing, I can write (and shoot) a great travel feature, spot a typo at 100 paces, and run a mean social media campaign. I’ve also excelled at an award-winning agency where turning around effective, data-driven strategies under extreme time pressure is of critical importance. I’m a digital all-rounder, equally comfortable pitching a Facebook Canvas, directing a video series, or writing up a newsletter strategy.
