I am a freelance travel writer, journalist, and editor, committed to providing
inspirational editorial. I am publisher and editor of online travel and lifestyle magazine LiveShareTravel, author of The Luxury Traveller’s Handbook, and write for a number of travel
publications. I am also specialist in the timeshare and fractional industries.
With the growth of online travel media and the impact of LiveShareTravel, I co-founded award-winning
digital influencer network, Captivate, working with the travel media to conceptualise and deliver creative influencer campaigns. I am also UK director for global influencer network, iambassador.
My early career was spent working across a wide range of national and regional media including Teletext, and that’s life magazine until I was bitten by the travel bug. Since then I have travelled far and wide, and combined my passion for travel with my work, as managing
editor of RCI Holiday and Ventures magazines.
I’m a keen photographer, with an eye for an engaging shot. The
photography page contains a small selection of my images of people, landmarks and landscapes.
In addition to writing destination features, I am experienced in
business and B2B travel journalism and undertake editorial projects. I also undertake social media consultancy, marketing projects and a range of corporate communications at Maia Communications.
Speaker, expert, consultant
I speak regularly at travel industry conferences and events such as WTM London on travel writing, blogging, social media and digital
innovation. I have also spoken on travel writing for the British
Library, and am founder of the Propel Conference, helping
intermediate-level bloggers take their blog to the next level.
I am also a luxury travel and timeshare expert and
consult on research studies and for companies in the industry.
