CV

Author, blogger, photographer, presenter, and industry expert

In today’s socially savvy society it’s no longer enough to be just a good writer. You also have to be plugged into social media 24/7, you have to recognise the current online trends, and you have to understand digital content and strategy; luckily this is something I do every day.

Even though I’m from a traditional journalist’s background, I’ve had to evolve and adapt over the years to become a multi-talented individual and I have a broad skillset from a number of industries.

As an experienced travel journalist with over four years’ experience in the industry, I predominately specialise in backpacking and travelling, specifically writing, editing and photography, while tying everything into social media seamlessly.

I spent three years as the travel editor at gapyear.com, the travel social network and travel advice website, before going on to run social media campaigns for some of the biggest tourist boards in the world, namely Visit Florida and Destination British Columbia.

I have a comprehensive array of skills, and these include:

NCTJ qualified Writing Creative campaigns
Content and social strategy Copywriting Social media campaigns
SEO web content and strategy Blogging PR campaigns
Commissioning experience Photoshop Press releases
Managing a team of bloggers and writers InDesign Account management
