Overview

If you need accurate, engaging copy and content to a deadline, please get in touch. If you need an expert on travel - especially all things Moroccan, I'm your woman! 13 years as a diplomat and civil servant – working on policies, media relations and events ranging from climate change to anti-terrorism – have helped me develop excellent written communication skills. For the last 2.5 years, I have been based in Essaouira, Morocco working for local NGOs and writing for travel industry clients.
