I’m a journalist, travel writer, editor and copywriter based in Melbourne, Australia. I write pacy travel features, edit edifying websites and fashion flamboyant copy. My articles and photographs have appeared in publications worldwide, from inflight to interior design: I’ve visited every continent, and have lived in three. Want to work together? Drop me a line…

MY STORY

Fear is found on a creaking glacier in the Caucasus mountains and joy is encapsulated in the perfect Shanghai dumpling.

I have travelled every continent and lived on three, eating everything I was told to (and many things I should not have). Trips of a lifetime, I’ve had a few, from playing piano while crossing the Drake Passage to Antarctica, hiking through ancient olive groves in Palestine, I’ve danced at Irish weddings and in Russian nightclubs, taken a dingy to find all-but-forgotten Australian rock art galleries, and slipped out of bed and into a Maldivian lagoon. I have a particular soft spot for the wilds of the Middle East, scarves and carpets.

And while I love a $500-a-night hotel room (who doesn’t?), sometimes the best stories are found in a $20 guesthouse. With an eye always out for good markets and great street eats, I write travel features for Sydney’s Sun-Herald and Sydney Morning Herald and Melbourne’s The Age newspapers, and hunt down the travel news for the Sun-Herald and Sunday Age Traveller section each week.

My articles and photographs have been published in a range of consumer magazines and newspapers in Australia and abroad including Voyeur (Virgin Australia), Jetstar magazine, Paradise (Air Nuiguini), Honda magazine, marie claire (Australia) and interior design magazines Belle, Vogue Living & Entertaining and Australian Home Beautiful.
 
Other publications include Get Lost!, Abercrombie & Kent magazine, Morning Calm (Korean Air), Finnair, OutThere (Rex Airlines), Outback Magazine, Vacations & Travel, The Irish Times, The Irish Independent, Australian Doctor, Accor Traveller, Western Horseman (US), The Adelaide Advertiser and the Sunday Mail‘s HOME magazine. I have also been a columnist for glossy News Ltd lifestyle magazine The Adelaide magazine.
 
I occasionally report on world events for Ireland’s RTE Radio, and am a member of the Australian Society of Travel Writers.
