Looking for reliable, relatable travel writing? I’d love to work with you.

I’m a freelance travel writer with more than a decade of experience. My work appears regularly in the Times and I’ve also written for the Sunday Times, Telegraph, Guardian, Independent, Sun, Express, Evening Standard, Time Out, CNN, Rough Guides, Michelin guides, Britain magazine and many more.

I specialise in travel around England, and to Scotland, Spain and Australia. My focus on a handful of destinations means I know them inside out. I’ve written a book about Scotland, am an author of the Rough Guide to Australia and speak fluent Spanish.

Thanks to time on staff at both the Guardian and Rough Guides, I’ve been on both sides of the commissioning fence – so I’ve never let an editor down on a deadline or filed copy that’s annoyingly over (or under) length.

I’m based in London but always happy to travel. I’d love to hear from you.

Want to hear more about my work? Interested in commissioning me or discussing a potential press trip? Get in touch!
