I’m a London-based editor, writer and content/brand strategist, specialising in travel, food and cities. I started my career at BBC Worldwide, and then spent a decade working as a staff editor for Time Out’s series of acclaimed city guides. My work at Time Out took me to Copenhagen, Stockholm, Florence, Mallorca and Madrid, each for several months at a time, to edit and write guidebooks; to destinations such as Chile and Turkey for magazine features; and to Argentina, where I worked for the Time Out Buenos Aires office for a year. I also wrote restaurant reviews for Time Out’s then highly respected Eating & Drinking guide over a period of ten years, and project-managed and commissioned many other books and guides.

As a freelancer, I’ve been a coffee expert for Which? magazine; written travel apps for Google; produced advertising copy client-side and for various agencies; and written/edited web content for Southbank Centre, Avis and Royal Museums Greenwich. I produce the National Maritime Museum’s Annual Review and have also written features for the The Independent, Metro, Design Week and Eurostar Metropolitan magazine, among others. My most recent project has also been my most engaging: I spent much of 2016 living in a mountain village in Andalucía to produce a food/cookbook for a local restaurant, and set up a small press, Casita Press (www.casitapress.com), to publish the book. 

I have a BSc in Social Anthropology from Goldsmith’s College (University of London) and speak advanced Spanish.
