Bringing the world to readers through
quality, cross-platform storytelling

A travel journalist for well over a decade, it’s been my responsibility to take the reader on a journey, transporting them to places new. As a chief sub-editor I have a steely eye for detail, eliminating empty phrases to ensure compelling copy that works hard.

Travel has always been a part of what I do. Before my career in media I qualified as an IATA agent, and working for airlines and as a travel booker granted me an insider’s understanding of the industry. Other topics close to my heart are food and drink, mental health, and the great outdoors, although I’m constantly keen to explore new territory. 

A frequent traveller and remote-working nomad, I’ve lived in New Zealand, the UK and Canada, and am currently based in Australia. (All I need is access to green spaces and good coffee.) Let me craft narratives that will engage and inspire your audience.
