Professional Experience

I'm a freelance writer with an international background and a broad range of skills. My published writing so far has focused mostly on tourism and travel writing, though I'd love to gain more experience and challenge myself by writing about other topics. I've lived in three different countries in the last ten years, and my passion for travel has given me an international perspective on many global issues. I'm currently based in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and have written several pieces for local news and tourism websites.
