I am a British travel / comedy writer and editor.
As a travel writer, I have a regular role as the London correspondent for Forbes Travel Guide, but also pen articles on destinations around the world for publications including The Telegraph, USA Today, Silverkris, National Geographic, Reader's Digest and Huffington Post. I also create web copy for international travel sites including Expedia, The Express and Monarch Airlines.
In addition, I am the founder and editor-in-chief of the travel writing service World Words.
As a comedy writer, since graduating from the renowned Scriptwriting course at Bournemouth University, I have written a wealth of comedy sketches, satirical articles, wedding speeches, film scripts and theatre plays for clients such as BBC Radio 4, NewsThump and NTS Live. I have also done a spot of script editing.
I am committed to completing all work to the highest standard and understand revisions may be necessary. I will therefore make any amends that are in line with the original project description for free.
