Born to peripatetic parents with a love of exploring new cultures, I developed a passion for travel as a child and knew that I wanted to become a travel writer while I was still at school. My path there wasn’t direct - I filled the years between graduating from Durham University to achieving my dream job filled with roles ranging from translator and PR in London to waitress and gardener in Aspen - but my first feature was printed in The Sunday Telegraph in 2007.
That first taste of print success spurred me on to launch my full-time career as a freelance travel writer. In the intervening years I have contributed to national newspapers including The Daily Telegraph, Financial Times, The Times and The Independent as well as magazines such as Condé Nast Traveller, Tatler, Harper's Bazaar and Robb Report.
In 2007, I co-wrote the Footprint ‘Skiing Europe’ guidebook, which established me as a sought-after British ski writer. I have subsequently written two acclaimed ski books for the teNeues publishing house (The Stylish Life of Skiing and The Ultimate Ski Book) and Powder - Snowsports in the Mountain World. I further co-edited the Ski Club of Great Britain's quarterly magazine, Ski+board, for three years. I am regularly called upon by the press to comment on ski industry news as an expert in the field.
In addition to accepting freelance editorial commissions, I use my writing experience and travel industry expertise to work on select copywriting and branding projects. I am further available to advise on brand strategy, business development and meaningful storytelling.
