About me

I’m a London-based freelance journalist covering travel, food and culture.

My writing has appeared in a range of publications both online and in print, including GQ, Condé Nast Traveller, Time Out, Suitcase, the Guardian, the Daily Telegraph, easyJet Traveller and Escapism. On this site you’ll find a selection of my previous articles…

My in-house experience counts two years as Editor of food and drink magazine Flava, while living in the Cayman Islands (2016-18).

I’m a NCTJ-trained journalist with a Masters in Magazine Journalism from City University London (prior to this, I read History of Art at the University of Cambridge).
