About

I'm a law and languages graduate pursuing my love for words as a writer while travelling the world.

I'm a creative copywriter who believes in the power of carefully chosen words.

I'm a travel writer and blogger who has worked with a number of travel brands including HomeAway.co.uk, VisitFinland and the Canadian Tourist Commission.

After blogging for two years as one of the Guardian newspaper's Top London Bloggers, I launched my travel blog in 2011. In addition to being a personal travelogue documenting where I've been and what I've done, As the Bird flies... is also an insight into my interests and personality; it's where I review books, pick a weekly song and share sources of travel and life inspiration.

A keen snowboarder and an enthusiastic mermaid wannabe, I love Japanese sushi, Scandinavian pop music and New York style cheesecake. When I'm not getting lost in a new city or crafting out copy for clients, I'm currently based in Amsterdam where I spend my spare time working on the follow up to my first collection of short stories, Shy Feet: Short Stories Inspired by Travel. If you'd like to discuss a possible job or advise me where in the world I can find the best tuna nigiri, I'd love to hear from you.
