About

File 15-07-2015 20 47 54For me, travel has been a life-long obsession. After university, I travelled through Asia, Oceania and the Americas for a number of years, with time spent living in Cuba, Colombia, Australia and Costa Rica, and almost five years in Singapore and Japan. I completed a two-year Postgraduate with London School of Journalism (remotely, while living in Asia), studied professional photography with The Photography Institute, and have worked as an editor and travel journalist ever since.

Now based in London, I am a journalist for Elite Traveler, a member of the British Guild of Travel Writers and a contributor to various print and online publications. On a freelance basis, I have written for Conde Nast Traveller (UK and US), Esquire, Food and Travel, Suitcase Magazine, Lifestyle + Travel, Huff Post Travel, Epicure, Time Out Singapore and DestinAsian, among other publications. I have produced content for travel companies such as Red Carnation Hotels, Trafalgar and Virgin Atlantic, and I regularly write hotel and restaurant reviews as well as carrying out interviews.

My most outstanding travel moments include exploring the far flung northwestern islands of Madagascar, gorilla trekking in Uganda, meeting the tribes of Papua New Guinea’s eastern highlands and hopping between idyllic islands in the Maldives by seaplane. I have a wide spectrum of travel experience, from hitchhiking across Japan to staying in luxury hotels, resorts and lodges, and venturing to hard to reach locations.
