About me

I began my career commissioning, editing and writing digital content for Rough Guides before launching loveEXPLORING for small digital publisher, Love Inc, in 2017. Eighteen months later, I left the arduous commute behind and went freelance.

 

Since then, I've written for the likes of The Telegraph, HELLO! Magazine, woman&home, Femail, Woman and Woman's Own, as well as US titles such as AFAR, Tripsavvy and Hidden Compass.
