Thanks for taking the time to read a little more about my skills and experience. Recently ranked as one of the UK’s 50 most influential travel writers in a poll conducted by the Press Gazette, I’m an award-winning travel writer, travel photographer and occasional TV presenter born in the UK and based in Brighton. Over the decade or so I have been writing about travel, I’ve been lucky enough to travel all over the place – in particular to South East Asia and countries of the former Soviet Union. I’ve also lived in Rwanda in East Africa, France, Spain and Australia
My travel features have been published in The Daily Mail, The Times, The Guardian, The Independent, Wanderlust and Travel Weekly. I’ve also worked with a number of design agencies to produce customer magazines for travel businesses. I was formerly Travel Editor for Independent Magazines, writing regular travel features for their stable of weekly titles: Girl About Town, Ms London, 9-5, Midweek, London and More and Living Abroad Magazine (LAM). In a previous incarnation I even wrote TV scripts for The Big Breakfast.
I spent a summer presenting undercover reports on ITV1’s Holidays Undercover. And I’ve also appeared as an expert on Channel 5’s the Hotel Inspector. I’d really like to do more TV work – so do get in touch if you’re looking for a new face to front a travel TV concept.
Commissioning, copywriting and content strategy
I work part time for HEARST-owned digital marketing agency iCrossing as Travel Editor, commissioning and writing travel features and destination guides for tourist boards, tour operators and airlines. I develop content strategies for these companies too – using search term and social media research to help them work out who their customers online really are, what to publish for them and where to publish it. I’m available to hire on a freelance basis. Find out more on my website dedicated to my services as a freelance copywriter.
