Freelance writer & editor for hire
Experience, services & reasons to get in touch
I’m a qualified journalist who’s been writing professionally for almost a decade, regularly contributing to a variety of publications, mostly in the travel industry.
Much of my writing at present is for the publisher Lonely Planet: I produce monthly batches of copy about London, including feature articles, news stories and impartial reviews. Sometimes my work will cause quite a stir, like the time I said Tooting was a cool neighbourhood, and every media outlet in the land weighed in.
Currently my main vocation is as the managing editor of gapyear.com, a content-driven site which receives half a million monthly visits and helps 18-35-year-olds plan adventures around the world. My role there is mostly strategic now, but over the years I’ve written reams of general copy and many articles for the site, and commissioned and edited even more.
Other publications I’ve written for include Time Out London, Rough Guides and The Independent, and I frequently work with national press and other media, including radio stations, as a spokesperson for the youth travel industry.

I'M TOTALLY RELIABLE
I'll deliver precisely what you want exactly when you want it. If for some reason I can't (you never know when an asteroid's going to hit) I'll communicate in advance with full transparency.
Portfolio of published work
Here's a small selection of my recent (ish, in some cases) writing. I'll cover anything from tongue-in-cheek blog posts to guides to feature articles to bespoke long form content.
