Hello! I’m a travel journalist, working full-time as deputy editor of Cathay Pacific’s Discovery magazine in Hong Kong.

When I’m not on a plane or answering emails I’m also a freelance writer, churning out words for UK titles including Escapism, The Independent, the Sunday Times Travel MagazineReader’s Digest, Canary Wharf Magazine, the Guardian, and Square Mile.

In 2016 I was shortlisted for AITO’s Young Travel Writer of the Year award, for a piece about Hauz Khas in Delhi in Escapism.

My last role in London was associate editor of the UK’s biggest independent travel magazine Escapism, City lifestyle titles Square Mile and Hedge and across digital publications Foodism and Festival Baby. I used to work for City A.M. as mining and energy correspondent.
