Welcome, I am a freelance features writer, based between Sydney, London and New York City.
As well as tinkering with creative ditties, my portfolio focuses on in-depth food, geographical and natural history stories and a variety of broader feature topics – I was, until very recently, a staff features editor and writer for MailOnline’s Femail NYC office, and I contribute to a variety of titles including the Independent newspaper, CNN and National Geographic Green magazine. I write a blog for the London Evening Standard (currently on hiatus, but will be back when the paper’s new site is ready).
Having grown up living, travelling, working and studying my way across six continents, my writing experience and portfolio is hugely varied. Past feature topics include heliskiing in Kashmir, plastic pollution in the Pacific and Omani fjord sailing, as well as many editing, copywriting and sub-editing projects.
I’m constantly exploring and developing news and feature ideas and am available for commissions, whether they be writing or research-based. I have appeared on international TV and radio and in online interviews, most notably for NBC as part of their G-2o coverage and for BBC World Service as part of their Brisbane floods coverage.
My work has been published by the BBC, CNN, Independent, National Geographic Green, Australian Women’s Weekly, Faint, Australian Geographic, Mamamia, The National, the London Evening Standard, Ecologist, L’Ecologiste, Base Camp, London Sport, Skieur, FreeSki and the London Lite. Examples of my work and features are available in the portfolio page, above (click on ‘older posts’ to browse through articles extending to 2006).
