I am an award-winning wordsmith based in Melbourne and London, with a lot to say on travel, food and pretty much everything else. I have just gone freelance after four years as Senior Writer at Food and Travel Magazine. I write for a variety of titles and brands - check out my portfolio here. My writing is characterised by my vivid imagination, poetic prose style and meticulous research skills. Born with itchy feet, previous adventures include living in California and Nepal, couch surfing around Scandinavia, riding the Trans Mongolian railway and living with a colony of nudists in Greece. More of that over a beer… I would be delighted to contribute editorial to your publication or collaborate with you on creative copywriting for your brand. If you have a story that needs telling, I will bring it to life for your readers.
