As an established journalist and editor based in Sydney, I was most recently the Digital Editor & Features Writer at leading Australian travel publication, Luxury Travel Magazine, for two years. During this time I wrote various long form features and cover stories for the magazine exploring themes such as sustainability in travel, the evolution of the global luxury travel market and the innovative new world of hotel design, plus various first-person narrative-led features.
Online, I created a constant stream of clickable digital content and was responsible for the technical side of luxurytravelmag.com.au, leading the redesign and relaunch of the new digital destination in 2018 and increasing traffic over the subsequent years. My work also involved writing and producing industry-leading interactive digital stories, exploring commercial opportunities with advertisers, commissioning freelance writers, attending media events and representing Luxury Travel Media on familiarisations throughout Australia, New Zealand, Asia, Europe and North America.
Prior to this I held two additional editor roles – at industry hair and fashion magazine, The Journal, and real estate and finance magazine Australian Broker, the latter of which left me with strong news reporting skills.
My freelance articles have been published on Business Insider, Collective Hub, Mamamia, est and stuff.co.nz, while my print features have been on the pages of Outback, Cruise Passenger and The Wentworth Courier, as well as design magazines Modern Home, Country Home Ideas and Home Ideas.
Thanks to a lifetime in front of the camera, I also have close to two decades’ experience as a presenter and host. With a natural on-screen presence and ability to talk comfortably in front of audiences, I have spent a number of years providing interviews and commentary for newspapers, magazines and TV, and continue to be available for work in this area today.
