I am a freelance travel journalist and comedy scriptwriter.
As a journalist, I've penned articles on destinations around the world for publications like The Telegraph, Reader's Digest, Vertu Select and Private Jet Magazine, as well as in-depth city guides and itineraries for Forbes Travel Guide, TravelTrot and GuidePal. I have also worked as a copywriter for international travel brands including VisitEngland, Cottages4you and Prague Tourism.
As a scriptwriter, I have a degree in Scriptwriting for Film and Television and have written comedy sketches for the BBC and The Chop House, award-nominated plays for the Edinburgh Fringe and feature film scripts for private clients. I have also worked as an editor for novelists like Tess Stimson and Deon Meyer.
