Lifestyle &

 travel writer 

 I'm a writer & editor 

 based in Bristol. 

I write for international, national and independent magazines and newspapers on any topic that I am passionate about, from food and thriller fiction to eco-holidays and hobbies. I write in appreciation of the simple things in life; to shine a light on inspiring people and projects; to explore thought-provoking new research; and to map out meaningful minibreaks.


Wherever I go, my trainers go with me, and my love for running has led to some muddy cross-country races and tough triathlons. I bake, cook, crochet and read (a lot). I also write poems and stories and take pictures on Instagram, @mycountryself.
