There’s so much out there of the world to experience – different cultures, breathtaking landscapes, wildlife and people from all walks of life. And through my travel writing I have been lucky enough to witness many of these firsthand. From a stay at Lapland’s famous Ice Hotel, to a train trip across Russia and partying in 24 hours of daylight at a Finnish Midsumer Sun party, I’ve been on some incredible journeys.
I am currently travel editor of Asda magazine’s website. This has given me a broad range of travel and leisure contacts, including journalists, PRS and key players in the travel industry, with the aim of creating travel content that drives consumers to boom through Asda Travel, Asda’s travel service.
Prior to this I was travel editor of Tesco magazine (which has a readership of 7 million) for five years. As well as writing and commissioning features I also write the magazine’s travel news page which necessitates keeping up to date with all the latest industry developments, trends and deals on offer so I can convey them to readers, ensuring they know the hottest places to for and get the best value for money.
I also contribute travel features to publications on a freelance basis which include The Sunday Times travel section, High Life, You and Your Wedding and The Express.
