Professional/Personal Overview
  Need engaging European travel, business, lifestyle coverage? A London editor?

I'm a London travel/business/tech/lifestyle editor-writer with years of experience—including high-profile cover stories—with top tier international magazines, sites, and newspapers.

I've interviewed Richard Branson (twice), Chef Albert Roux and Tim and Nina Zagat to name a few, and been invited all over the globe on assignments and fams—Cape Town, Marrakech, Holland, Venice, Portugal, Frankfurt, South Australia, California, Vancouver Island, NYC, Wales...

I am also extremely plugged into London and LA hospitality, events, trends through my work with local publications and networks.
