I’m a London-based editor, writer and publisher, specialising in travel, food, cities and the arts. 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 have also written features for the The Independent, Metro, Design Week and Eurostar Metropolitan magazine, among others.

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, to publish the book. Since then I have published two additional Casita books – Intelligent Yoga and David Parr: Life and Art in a Worker’s Home – and am currently working on a fourth, also on David Parr. Please visit this website for further information.

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